State-of-the-art facility to meet training needs in aviation.
Vietjet Air has opened a new training center in Ho Chi Minh City with modern equipment that meets the increasing needs of teachers and students.
Located at CT Plaza (60A Truong Son, Tan Binh district), the new training center is a spacious, state-of-the-art facility that satisfies the demand for training in aviation and service fuelled by Vietjet’s impressive growth, with 85 teachers and 5,000 students in 400 courses.
Vietjet took the opening to announce its business performance in 2014 and reveal its business development plan for 2015. Last year it surpassed its growth targets in earning revenue of VND8,100 billion ($368 million) and contributing VND1,400 billion ($63.6 million) in tax to the State budget. It also achieved its expansion goals by adding to its fleet, which now stands at 20 Airbus aircraft, and expanding its domestic and international networks.
Last year the airline flew 5.6 million passengers at a capacity of 88 per cent. With a total of 28 domestic and international routes Vietjet now flies to every major economic and tourism center in Vietnam and to major cities and tourist destinations such as Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, South Korea, and Taiwan.
In 2015 Vietjet will continue to develop in a sustainable fashion by adding more domestic and international routes, creating more joint ventures and maintaining its position as the leading new age airline in Vietnam and one of the fastest growing airlines in the region. “Since entering the aviation market, Vietjet has been able to offer more and more flying opportunities to millions of customers, with 30 per cent of our customers flying for the first time thanks to Vietjet,” said Managing Director Luu Duc Khanh. “We have transformed Vietnam’s air travel industry by making it affordable and convenient and we will continue to follow this path as we expand across the region.”
In accordance with its policy for the year ahead, called “Open the ASEAN Sky”, Vietjet is looking to introduce more and more customers in Vietnam, Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific region to its high-quality services and unbeatable fares, which have made flying easier and more enjoyable than ever before.
