Speaking at the ceremony, Vietjet Managing Director Luu Duc Khanh, said: “It is our great honor to have our aircraft emblazoned with the official logo for the 45th anniversary of the Vietnam – France diplomatic relations. This is a meaningful tribute that acknowledges Vietjet’s continual efforts to introduce a vivid image of an innovative and integrated Vietnam to the international community. Standing high from profoundly comprehensive collaborations among Vietjet and French partners, we would contribute more to the development of economic – cultural – trade cooperation between Vietnam and France.”
The newly added A321 is the 43th of a total 121 aircraft that Vietjet has ordered from Airbus. This delivery is the fastest ever handover made between the two companies. The new aircraft boasts a wide cabin with a logical configuration that will give passengers extra comfort so they can enjoy a superlative flying experience with Vietjet.
