HCM CITY (VNS) — VietJetAir yesterday signed an agreement with AWAS, one of the world's leading aircraft leasing companies, to lease three brand-new Sharklet-equipped A320 aircraft, making it the first airline in the country to have a new fuel-saving wing-tip device.

The new Sharklet-equipped A320 aircraft will assist VietJetAir with its plans to expand into ASEAN and northern Asia to regional destinations such as Kuala Lumpur, Busan, Seoul, Singapore and Taipei.

The budget airline also said last Friday that it was offering discounted tickets for its forthcoming route from HCM City to Buon Ma Thuot for just VND100,000 (US$4.5).

Passengers can book fares on from 9pm till 11:59pm tomorrow to travel between May 20 and December 20. The route will open on May 20 with one round trip per day. — VNS
