National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines expects to make pretax profit of VND50 billion (US$2.8 million) in 2009, down 79% from a year ago.
The airline targets to serve nine million passengers this year, up 4% on-year, said Deputy Chief of the firm’s Public Relations Office Le Hoang Dung said.
Dung forecast that the airline will carry 2.9 million passengers in the fourth quarter of this year.
To deal with adverse impacts by the global economic downturn, Vietnam Airlines has been trying to save fuel and changed its flight schedule as well as ticket prices. (Transport)
