Vietjet Air received its newest A321 aircraft which bears the official logo for the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Viet Nam and France, in Paris, on March 28th.
The hand-over ceremony took place in the presence of General Secretary of the Communist Party of Viet Nam Nguyen Phu Trong during his official state visit to France and leaders from the two countries.
Speaking at the ceremony, Vietjet’s Managing Director Luu Duc Khanh said: “It is our great honor to have our aircraft emblazoned with the official logo for the 45th anniversary of the diplomatic relations. We would contribute more to the development of economic - cultural - trade cooperation between Viet Nam and France.”
The newly added A321 aircraft is the 43th of a total 121 aircrafts that Vietjet ordered from Airbus.
