HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — VietJet welcomed today the latest addition to its expanding fleet as a brand new Airbus A320 landed at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in HCM City.

This is the second aircraft delivered from the 100 Airbus jets ordered from the French aviation company. It was purchased through a financing agreement made by VietJet with the American GE Capital and TPBank from Viet Nam.

With an aircraft code of VN-A659, this single-aisle plane is the top selling aircraft worldwide as it utilises advanced technology to help airlines reduce fuel consumption and lower operational costs.

This latest addition will increase the number of aircraft in VietJet's fleet to reach 19, enabling the airline to meet the spike in travel demand during the upcoming holiday season, including Christmas, New Year and Tet (Lunar New Year holiday). — VNS
