Trai Thien Air Cargo licensed to operate

Trai Thien Air Cargo received a license from the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam Oct. 16 to operate freight services in the country and outside.

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung gave the green light to the Ministry of Transport to allow Trai Thien to provide air cargo transport services.

The company was the country’s first private company licensed to provide air cargo transport services. It will use Boeing 737-300F aircraft of the non-passenger carrying kind.

Trai Thien Air Cargo says it will focus on the domestic market. It will also operate the services between Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi and Northeast Asia, between Tan Son Nhat Airport in Ho Chi Minh City and Southeast Asia.

The company is an arm of the Trai Thien Group, which is working to open an office in California to pave the way for its direct goods transport service between Vietnam and the US. Trai Thien Maritime Transport, another Trai Thien company, will provide the sea transport services.
