today is one of Vietjetís milestones of strategic development to
optimize our cost-reducing opportunities while enhancing ground
handling service quality and create more sources of revenue,Ē said
Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son.
Vietjet is currently one of largest airlines in
Vietnam and currently operates over 30
domestic and international routes from and to the airport, serving
thousands of passengers daily.
By setting up its own ground handling services
amidst an impacted aviation industry, Vietjet has proved to be an
airline of great administration capabilities as it constantly
comes up with new initiatives to respond to the changing and
challenging business environment.
Vietjet is one of the fastest growing airlines in the region,
and its consolidated after-tax profit reached VND47 billion
(approx. US$2 million) in the first six months of 2020.
ďVietjet has proactively sought for extra business
opportunities in addition to the self-handling ground services,
for example boosting the cargo transport services since April 2020
and operating thousands of cargo flights delivering essential
goods and medical equipment,Ē Son added.
