Vietjet Orders 30 More Airbus A321s

Vietjet has placed a firm order with Airbus for the purchase of 30 more A321s (9 A321ceo and 21 A321neo).

Vietjet first took to the skies at the end of 2011 and now operates a fleet of 29 A320 Family aircraft including three A321s, on a network covering Vietnam and a growing number of destinations across Asia.

The airline has now placed firm orders with Airbus for a total of 99 A320 Family aircraft.

This order for additional A321s responds to our growth strategy and to the need for additional seat capacity on both domestic and international routes, said Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, Vietjet President and CEO Our aim is to be Vietnam and Asias new age carrier, known for quality, efficiency and comfort and our A320 fleet has earned us this reputation.

Incorporating new engines and the latest technologies, Airbus says the A320neo Family will bring a step-change reduction in fuel consumption of over 15% from day 1 and 20% by 2020, longer range capability and reduced maintenance costs, as well significantly reduced carbon emissions.
