Vietnam Airlines has placed a firm order with Airbus for 16 more single aisle A321s and signed a Memorandum of Understanding for two additional A350 XWBs.

The latest A321 contract increases the total number of orders placed by Vietnam Airlines for the type to 41, of which 14 have already been delivered. The commitment for the A350 XWBs comes in addition to an existing firm order for 10 aircraft placed in December 2007. Vietnam Airlines has selected the A350-900 variant of the all-new midsize widebody.

"Our new order for the A321 reflects the success we have achieved with the aircraft on both our regional and domestic route networks," said Pham Ngoc Minh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vietnam Airlines. "In the widebody category, we firmly believe that the A350 XWB will set new standards of efficiency and passenger comfort, making it the right choice to develop our intercontinental route network."

"Vietnam will remain one of the key growth markets in Asia in coming years," added Airbus President and CEO Tom Enders. "With the Airbus single aisle family and the all-new A350 XWB, Vietnam Airlines will be operating one of the most modern and efficient fleets in the region and will be well placed to meet demand on both its Asian and international services."

Vietnam Airlines currently operates a mixed fleet of 52 modern aircraft and flies to 19 domestic and 23 international destinations.
