[HD video below] Vietjet has taken delivery of its latest
brand new Airbus A320, the third of the 100 aircraft order made by
the airline with Airbus in September 2013.
The arrival of VN-A659 brings Vietjetís
current fleet count to 21, a timely addition to accommodate the
increased travel demand during the Lunar New Year holiday season.
Vietjet is also expected to welcome another A320
aircraft in Thailand in March 2015. This will enable its joint
venture Thai Vietjet to operate its inaugural domestic flight in
Thailand during the busy Songkran festival period in April.
Thai Vietjet will operate domestic flights from
Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok to Phuket, Udon Thani and Krabi,
as well as international flights between Bangkok and Hanoi or Ho
Chi Minh in Vietnam.
With a fleet of 21 Airbus A320 aircraft, Vietjet
operates approximately 150 flights per day. The airline currently
operates 28 domestic and international routes across the region,
including destinations such as Singapore, Thailand, South Korea,
Taiwan and Cambodia. It is also actively planning to expand its
international flight network across the Asia Pacific region and
