The now know Vietnam Airlines (A320, A321, A330, ATR72, B777 and F70) is/was also known as Hang Khong Viet Nam (Vietnamese for Vietnam Airlines).

Here are some pictures about Hang Khong Viet Nam (HKVN):

Than there was also an airline with the name Air Viet Nam (AVN). This airline was founded back in 1951 with help of Air France. Also some picture of it:

So I always thinking that HKVN was from North Vietnam and AVN was from South Vietnam. Now on Wikipedia I found this picture of AVN:



This B707 had the same livery as one B727 of HKVN. My question is, if HKVN and AVN was the same company? Or did AVN merge into HKVN?

Judging by the pictures, Air Vietnam appears to adorn the South Vietnamese flag on its tail.

Hang Khong Viet Nam is Vietnam Airlines and one presumes that it took over Air Vietnam after the war.



Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Hang Khong Viet Nam is roughly translated as Air Vietnam. both were practically Air Vietnam,

The Vietcong version and the Republic version. the Republic used Air Vietnam in english and the VC and NV used Vietnam Airlines.

AVN was long gone in 1975, the VC took over the management and most of the AVN planes had escaped out of the country.

I ran accross this lovely picture of if AVN was still around, but I do agree that the last colors was very brilliant especially the 727
