Both Airbus aircraft arrive in HCMC - one purchased and one leased.
Vietjet Air’s latest aircraft, an A321 coded VN-A667, landed at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport late on January 21 after setting out from Hamburg in Germany.
The aircraft is the twelfth in the milestone agreement between Vietjet and Airbus on acquiring or leasing 100 aircraft. With its advanced design, fuel efficiency, and low CO2 emissions, the new aircraft will boost the carrier’s efficiency and protect the environment.
On the same day Vietjet also received a leased A321 coded LZ-PMZ, which landed at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in the middle of the afternoon.
“With these additions to its fleet, Vietjet is now operating 32 brand-new and modern A320s and A321s, helping the new-age airline further develop its network in Vietnam and across the Asia-Pacific region,” said Mr. Luu Duc Khanh, Vietjet’s Managing Director.
Vietjet can now operate 1,000 more flights with 200,000 more passengers. To meet the surging demand during Tet holiday it has launched new routes connecting destinations within Vietnam and other countries.
