In celebration of the 10th anniversary of its first flight on Christmas Day, Vietjet welcomed its first wide-body aircraft of A330 to its world’s most modern and lively fleet, getting the airline ready for global flight network expansion and new passenger service experiences.

The Airbus A330-300 aircraft, registered as VN-A811 with a soft and iridescent golden silk strip livery, landed at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in the morning with jubilant activities. The soft golden silk strip symbolizes the cultural quintessence of Vietnam and Asia generally. It images the shape of the mountains and the rivers alongside the countries and conveys the pride of the oriental region’s legendary cultures. The unique livery also expresses the connection between the traditional and the modern between the East and West cultures and among the countries and the people around the world.

Equipped with comfortable and spacious leather seats, along with quiet cabin in 12 business-seat and 365 normal-seat configuration, Vietjet’s new aircraft can cover from medium-haul trips to true long-range distances of up to 11,750km with fuel efficient and eco-friendly operation.

The A330 aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engine with Total Care, the flagship integrated technical services of the world’s leader in power systems and aerospace of Rolls-Royce, to ensure the airline’s engine efficiency and high technical reliability in operation.

Vietjet Managing Director Dinh Viet Phuong said: “We are delighted to mark our 10th anniversary today with an A330 aircraft’s arrival, which will help Vietjet grow significantly in operation capacity and international footprint expansion. Our fleet of A320 and A321 over the years has carried more than 100 million passengers on tens of thousands of friendly, safe and affordable flights across Vietnam and Asia-Pacific region. The A330 aircraft with a golden silk image is also a part of Vietjet’s ongoing commitment to modernize fleet and elevate services so that our customers can take farther flights more comfortably with the most competitive ticket fares ever. We will also launch upgraded SkyBoss services soon as another special gift for our customers.”
