Vietjet to purchase 20 Airbus A330neo planes


Budget carrier Vietjet Air has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus to acquire 20 widebody A330-900 aircraft.

The order marks the airline’s first widebody order and will be used for both expanding their long-range network and high-capacity regional routes.

The new aircraft will replace Vietjet’s current fleet of leased A330-300s.

Vietjet CEO Dinh Viet Phuong said:

The new A330neo aircraft is a strategic addition to comprehensively modernise Vietjet’s fleet, enhancing operational capabilities to support our global flight network expansion plan.

He also highlighted the A330neo’s fuel efficiency as aligning with the airline’s commitment to net-zero emissions by 2050.

Christian Scherer, Airbus’s Chief Executive Officer for Commercial Aircraft, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, stating:

The A330neo will enable the airline to achieve the lowest possible operating costs per seat and to continue to offer its customers the best possible value wherever they fly.

According to Airbus, the A330neo offers an enhanced passenger experience through its Airspace cabin design and is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines for optimal fuel efficiency.
