NDO – A new aircraft A321, featuring the official logo for the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and France, was handed over to the low-cost airlines VietJet Air at a ceremony in Paris on March 29.

The ceremony was attended by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong, who is paying a State visit to France, and leaders from the two countries.

The logo features the image of a Vietnamese woman wearing a Non La (palm-leaf conical hat) and a red Ao Dai (traditional silk dress) holding hands with a French woman wearing a beret and a blue-white plaid dress.

Speaking at the ceremony, VietJet Air Managing Director Luu Duc Khanh said that the aircraft was in recognition of VietJet Air’s contributions to promoting Vietnam’s image to the international community. “Standing high from the profoundly comprehensive collaborations among Vietjet and French partners, we will contribute more to the development of economic-cultural-trade cooperation between the two countries”, he added.

The newly added A321 aircraft is the 43rd of a total of 121 aircraft that Vietjet ordered from Airbus.

The aircraft will allow the airline to pursue its strategy of improving its services and expanding its operations to farther destinations in the Republic of Korea, Japan, India, Australia and other destinations in the Asia - Pacific region.

Earlier, Vietjet also signed a comprehensive agreement with Safran-CFM on supplying 321 engines to power the airline’s 148 aircraft, as well as on fleet management services, training, R&D programmes and technical management.
