Vietjet has signed a purchase agreement with Airbus for 50 more Airbus A321neos, and a Memorandum of Understanding with CFM International for a long-term LEAP – 1B engine support.

The deal for the fleet expansion was signed in Hanoi by Vietjet President & CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao and Airbus Chief Commercial Officer Christian Scherer.

“We are honored to be a long-term partner of Vietjet along with the airline’s success and pleased to finalize this new order today,” said Christian Scherer. “The airline’s latest preference for the Airbus product is a testimony to a great endorsement for the A321 in the fast-growing market”.

Vietjet also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CFM International for a long-term LEAP – 1B engine support. The agreement is worth US$5.3 billion, and was signed by Vietjet’s President & CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao and Philippe Couteaux, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CFM International.

This latest deal includes spare engines and support packages that will facilitate the airline’s already-ordered new aircraft from Airbus.

Both contract signings were witnessed by Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe, who is currently in Vietnam on an official visit.
