Vietnam's Hai Au gains support from Luxaviation
Luxaviation will help HAA sell aircraft block hours through its own distribution channels and grow relationships with financial institutions. It will also use TMG and HAA travel, hospitality, online booking and aviation services.
TMG Travel Pillar and Vivu Journeys managing director Christopher Farwell with Luxaviation Group CEO Patrick Hansen.

Luxaviation Group has signed an agreement to build a strategic relationship with Vietnamese travel company Thien Minh Group (TMG), and especially with its subsidiary Hai Au Aviation (HAA), the largest business jet operator in the country and Vietnam’s first seaplane service for tourism; its Cessna Grand Caravan 208B-EX seaplane is also used for survey flights. Since 2020, Hai Au Aviation has expanded services to include private aircraft management and operations.

The partnership will see the companies exchange expertise in aviation, travel and hospitality services, and is the first step towards potential future collaborations. Luxaviation Group is committed to supporting TMG, its subsidiary HAA and other TMG subsidiaries with operational capability, networks and relationships with aviation authorities, while TMG and its subsidiaries will support Luxaviation with IT, digital marketing and flight operations.

The agreement also outlines Luxaviation's intention to assist HAA in selling aircraft block hours through its own distribution channels and to support TMG in establishing trusting relationships with key financial institutions and decision makers. Furthermore, Luxaviation will consider utilising TMG and its subsidiaries' services given the latter's experience in travel, hospitality, online booking and aviation.

Luxaviation Group CEO Patrick Hansen says: “We are very excited about this future collaboration, as it underlines our strategy to work together with local partners to accelerate our geographic expansion. We are impressed by TMG's extensive experience in the travel and hospitality sector, and we are certain that we can continue to grow together in this market. TMG's expertise will be an incredible asset for Luxaviation Group as we intend to develop our global footprint.”

TMG CEO Tran Trong Kien adds: “This partnership brings together two market leaders in the aviation sector and combines their expertise to expand Hai Au Aviation's offering. The Thien Minh Group has been working in the travel and hospitality sector for almost three decades and is delighted at the prospect of working with a fellow established group such as Luxaviation. We welcome this agreement and look forward to continuing to develop our partnership in the future.”
