Published on : Wednesday, June 17, 2015

imagesVietnamese carrier VietJetAir has placed a firm order with Airbus for the purchase of six additional A321s. The order was signed today at the Paris Air Show by VietJetAir President and CEO, Madam Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, and Airbus President and CEO, Fabrice Brégier.

 

 

“The A320 Family has proven to be extremely efficient in service with VietJetAir”, said Madam Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, VietJetAir President and CEO. “Since we took delivery of our first A321 in March this year we have benefitted strongly from the additional capacity offered by the aircraft and its low operating costs. We are therefore placing this additional order for the A321 to meet demand on some of our most popular routes.”

 

 

“We are pleased to see VietJetAir renewing its confidence in Airbus by enlarging their A320 Family fleet”, said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO. “The A320 Family offers the lowest operating costs in the single aisle market and this latest order from VietJetAir further confirms the growing popularity of the A321 as the largest member of the product line.”

 

 

VietJetAir first took to the skies at the end of 2011 and now operates a fleet of 25 A320 Family aircraft on a network covering Vietnam and a growing number of destinations across Asia. Following today’s announcement, the carrier has ordered a total of 69 aircraft from Airbus, including this order, and also holds purchase rights for another 30 aircraft.

 

 

The A321 is the largest member of the best-selling single aisle A320 Family. To date, the A320 Family has won more than 11,700 orders and over 6,500 aircraft delivered to more than 300 operators worldwide. With one aircraft in four sizes (A318, A319, A320 & A321), the A320 Family, seating from 100 to 240 passengers, seamlessly covers the entire single-aisle segment from low to high-density domestic to longer range routes.
