Vietjet reached a new milestone taking delivery of the 101st aircraft at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City. The arrival of the new 240-seat A321neo ACF aircraft represents Vietjet' commitment to constant fleet expansion, with a total of 384 aircraft on order from leading manufacturers worldwide. 

Vietjet's cabin crew purser, Minh Huyen, commented: "I am honored to witness this historical moment as Vietjet welcomes the 101st aircraft to Vietnam today. Together with our colleagues, we have been a part of realizing the flying dreams of hundreds of millions of passengers. We would like to extend special thanks to our beloved passengers for their trust and companionship throughout this journey. Vietjet's fleet will continue to grow as we strive to make every flight a joyful and pleasant experience for passengers around the world."

Adorned with their vibrant red-and-yellow livery and featuring the iconic "Hello Vietnam" song onboard, Vietjet's fleet has become a symbol of connectivity and happiness, reaching numerous destinations across the globe. Despite the challenges faced, Vietjet has successfully served over 178 million passengers, connecting countries and contributing to business ties and trade opportunities. Furthermore, the airline has played a significant role in the growth of Vietnam's aviation industry and the Asia-Pacific region, solidifying the region's position on the global aviation map.

As the festive season approaches, Vietjet and Thai Vietjet are well-prepared to welcome global travelers on our new aircraft. Vietjet's professional and cheerful flight crew are dedicated to providing excellent service across our expanding flight network, which includes destinations such as Australia, India, China, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Southeast Asia, and beyond.

The introduction of the new A321neo ACF aircraft allows Vietjet to achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption, with at least a 16% decrease, as well as up to 75% less noise and up to 50% fewer emissions. Boasting the world's leading modern fleet with optimized operating costs, Vietjet aims to provide passengers with more affordable flights while also prioritizing environmental protection and sustainable development. It is worth noting that since 2019, Vietjet has been the first airline worldwide to operate the new A321neo ACF 240-seat aircraft.
