​Rishworth Aviation has been proudly recruiting flight crew for Vietnam Airlines since 2000 and have a dedicated team, including pilot representatives who will ensure you receive the very best service while living and working in Vietnam.

Based in Hanoi, Vietnam Airlines has positioned itself as an internationally recognised brand, as a young and modern carrier, fully ingrained in and showcasing the traditional Vietnamese culture. Utilising a fleet of narrow and wide-body Airbus, Boeing, and ATR72 aircraft, Vietnam Airlines operates an extensive network of domestic and regional services within South East Asia and North Asia and international services to Europe and Australia.

Vietnam Airlines is making great progress in building a modern and environmentally-friendly fleet, with the airline expected to reach 150 aircraft by 2020, with the Boeing 787-9, Boeing 787-10 and Airbus 350-900 aircraft enabling the airline to become one of the leading carriers across the Asia Pacific region, while also expanding its international network.

In 2010, Vietnam Airlines joined SkyTeam, the world’s second largest global airline alliance, affirming the carrier’s new position on the global aviation map as the strategic partner of the alliance in the Asia Pacific region.

​Captain Lara has been on assignment with Rishworth Aviation at Vietnam Airlines for 3 years and has enjoyed the experience in Vietnam, and being supported by Rishworth's team.

"In 2014 I made the decision to look for work options outside of my country and fortunately I found Rishworth Aviation. I am very grateful that Rishworth’s professional team took me by the hand and guided me throughout the process. I have now been flying for 3 years with Vietnam Airlines, which has given me and my family the opportunity to get to know the Asian culture and wonderful places both inside and outside of Vietnam, as well as to be a part of an excellent group of expatriate pilots and their families."
