Vietjet has added four new aircraft to its fleet in May, marking the airline’s upcoming intercontinental flight network expansion.
The new aircraft includes three A321neos and one A330, which feature fuel savings, emission reduction and environmental protection to help modernise Vietjet’s fleet, enhance operational efficiency as well as reduce operating costs.
Vietjet plans to expand its fleet of 87 aircraft, including nine Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft, in 2023.
In addition, the airline aims to operate 139,513 flights with 25.7 million passengers onboard, with its targeted consolidated revenue for 2023 at over 50,178 billion dong (US$2.14 billion) while after-tax profit is set at 1,000 billion dong.
Growing in fleet size will also support the flight network expansion plan. The airline has recently announced a series of new services from Vietnam to Japan’s Hiroshima and India’s Kochi, as well as restoring flight operations to Phuket, Hong Kong, Daegu among others.
