Building safer skies in Vietnam since 1990s

Thales is present throughout the entire aerospace value chain. On the ground, we are proud to be a long-term partner of the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam and the Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation by supporting their ambitions to become a leading air navigation service provider in the region. In the air, we equip majority of the Airbus fleets with Thales’ avionics and electrical systems, and provide in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems onboard Vietnam Airlines’ A350 and B787 fleets. 

Alongside the Vietnamese armed forces for over 25 years

Thales is a long-term trusted partner of the Vietnamese Navy having served the nation’s defence markets since the early 1990s in coastal surveillance systems, sonars and optronics equipment.  We have also forged a close collaboration with the People’s Army of Vietnam through successful implementation of strategic defence systems and the transfer of technological know-how, training and services. We are entrusted by the armed forces, governments and global organisations to help them achieve and maintain security, tactical superiority and strategic independence in the face of any type of threats.
