National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines aims to serve more than 24.3 million passengers and earn consolidated net profit of over 97 trillion VND (4.27 billion USD) in 2018. 
The airline also targets pre-tax profit of more than 2.4 trillion VND (105.4 million USD) this year, while that of the parent company will be at 1.95 trillion VND (85.6 million USD).
The information was revealed during the annual shareholders’ meeting of Vietnam Airlines held in Hanoi on May 10. It was the third meeting since the company completed equitisation in 2015, to discuss a series of important issues including the modification of the internal management regulations.
At the meeting, the shareholders discussed a report on business performance in 2017 and main targets of the business plan in 2018, along with auditing financial statements in 2017 and plans for the distribution of profits and dividends. They also approved a plan to sell the carrier’s shares on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange (HOSE) this year.
In 2017, Vietnam Airlines conducted 140,000 flights carrying 22 million passengers. The corporation earned a record pre-tax profit of over 3.15 trillion VND (135.1 million USD), surpassing the yearly target by 92.6 percent and posting a year-on-year increase of 21.3 percent.
The parent company raked in more than 64.9 trillion VND in revenue and 1.9 trillion VND in pre-tax profit, exceeding the set target by 52 percent and registering a year-on-year rise of 11.7 percent.
Vietnam Airlines maintained its four-star rating by Skytrax for two consecutive years.
The on-time performance index (OTP) reached 90.2 percent for departures and 83.2 percent for arrivals, putting Vietnam Airlines among the top 10 airlines with the best OTP in the globe.
In 2017, Vietnam Airlines continued receiving national and international recognition with a number of prestigious awards, most notably being listed on the 10 strongest brands of Brand Finance.
Vietnam Airlines’ market capitalization was valued at over 60.6 trillion VND (2.65 billion USD) on March 30, 2019 (49,400 VND per share), up 38 percent compared to the time its share debuted on the Unlisted Public Company Market (Upcom) at 39,200 VND per piece.
In Q1 2018, Vietnam Airlines’ consolidated profit hit nearly 25.5 trillion VND (1.12 billion USD), while the parent company raked in about 18.6 trillion VND (816.82 million USD), up 13 percent year-on-year. Pre-tax profit of the corporation reached 1.46 billion VND (64.12 million USD) in the period, a rise of 6.2 percent compared to its yearly target.
