Vietnam Airlines will join the SkyTeam alliance on 10 June in Hanoi, followed by Romanian flag carrier Tarom on 25 June in Bucharest.

"At the moment, both airlines are audited and need to demonstrate fulfilment and understanding of the requirements to deliver the SkyTeam customer service standards," says the alliance.

The carriers are working with a team of SkyTeam member airlines to guide them through more than 100 membership requirements in areas such as lounge access, recognition of frequent flyer programmes and priority baggage handling, says SkyTeam.

"After the SkyTeam governing board has officially approved their membership, both airlines will celebrate with a joining ceremony," it adds.
