A 12-year EngineWise Comprehensive service agreement for Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine maintenance for Vietnam Airlines fleet of 20 Airbus A321neo aircraft is signed! Vietnam Airlines' first A321neo entered into service in late 2018.

The signing took place in a ceremony in Vietnam's capital, Hanoi, and was attended by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, along with officials from Vietnam Airlines and Pratt & Whitney.

"Vietnam Airlines' objective is to have the highest level of safety, performance and reliability on our entire fleet which includes GTF-powered aircraft," said Dang Ngoc Hoa, Executive Vice President, Vietnam Airlines.
