Air France says it plans for non-stop service between Ho Chi Minh City and Paris in a year's time.

"We are weighing the proposal to open non-stop flights from HCM City to Paris by the end of next year," the airline's South Area manager in Vietnam, Jean Denis Bour, told Vietnam News Agency.

He said the improved economic situation and the rise in the number of foreign tourists to Vietnam were the major reasons behind the decision.

"But profitability will depend mainly on an increasing number of business travellers to and from Vietnam," he said. "And the control of operational costs in Vietnam remains a key point."

Bour said the airline would like to remain the major European carrier in Vietnam and continue to work closely with Vietnam Airlines in a partnership which is "very successful for both airlines."

"It is crucial for us to review our performance, especially now - three months after the tragedy in the US that plunged the whole aviation industry into crisis," said Marie-Joseph Male, managing director and executive vice president of the carrier for the Asia-Pacific.

Air France currently flies between Ha Noi and Paris on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and between HCM City and Paris on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, all via Bangkok.
