HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — VietJet opened a new training centre in Viet Nam's largest city and main commercial hub on Sunday.

The move is to meet the growing demand for aviation services and service training, fuelled by the airline's impressive growth.

First established in August 2012, VietJet's previous training centre has so far had 85 teachers and 5,000 students in 400 courses. Its new centre is located at CT Plaza, 60A Truong Son, Tan Binh District, HCM City.

Despite domestic and global economic challenges, VietJet still posted impressive business results in 2014, earning VND8.1 trillion (US$380.3 million) in revenue and contributing VND1.4 trillion ($65.72 million) to the State budget.

Last year, the airline flew 5.6 million passengers with a load factor of 88 per cent. With a total of 28 domestic and international routes, the airline currently flies to every major economic and tourism centre in Viet Nam, and also flies to other cities and tourist destinations in Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia and South Korea, besides Taiwan.

VietJet also expanded its fleet, which now features 20 Airbus aircraft, and also its domestic and international networks.

VietJet said that in 2015, it will continue to develop in a sustainable fashion by adding more domestic and international routes, creating more joint ventures and maintaining its position as the leading new-age airline in Viet Nam and one of the fastest growing airlines across the region.

"Since entering the aviation market, VietJet has been able to offer more and more flying opportunities to millions of customers and 30 per cent of our customers flew for the first time, thanks to VietJet," said VietJet managing director Luu Duc Khanh.

In accordance with the aviation policy for the year ahead of "Open the ASEAN Sky," VietJet is now looking to introduce more and more customers in Viet Nam, across Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific region to the airline's high-quality services and unbeatable fares that have made flying easier and more enjoyable than ever before. —VNS
