VietJet Aviation and Airbus reached an agreement on purchase of 20 more A321s. The order is valued at approximately $2.39 billion at current list prices. “We are pleased to sign our latest purchase agreement with Vietjet,” said Airbus President and CEO Fabrice Brégier.
“Vietjet is benefitting from the very significant economies that come from operating a single aircraft family. For busier routes, the A321 combines higher capacity with the lowest operating costs in its class, offering unbeatable efficiency. We look forward to developing our partnership with Vietjet further, including working with the airline to develop its new training facility,” added Brégier.
At the signing ceremony, Vietjet President and CEONguyễn Thị Phương Thảo shared, "Vietjet is developing robustly and sustainably with an aim at better serving our passengers and promoting tourism and economic development in Vietnam and other regional countries”.
The airplanes in this purchase will be delivered to Vietjet from 2017 until 2020.
