Vietnam Airlines orders Airbus Jets Worth $6.5 Billion

On September 6th 2016, Gregory Polek wrote an article for AIN Online discussing how Airbus announced a deal with Vietnamese Airlines that recently passed. The contract consisted of three different orders. The first order was for Vietjet for 20 Airbus A321s. Another order was for Jetstar Pacific for 10 Airbus A320s. Lastly, there was an order for Vietnam Airline for 10 Airbus A350-900s. In total, these orders have a combined potential value of around $6.5 billion at list price.

Vietnam Airline has been considered the first airline in the Eastern Asia region and the second in the world to operate the A350 XWB. In addition to this the Vietnam fleet consists of four of the Airbus A350-900s and will sum up to a total of fourteen after Airbus delivers on its deal.

Vietjet order for the Airbus A321 can be more specifically broken down into 10 of the current generation A321s and 10 of the Airbus A321 neos. Vietjet in specific uses airlines for mainly domestic and regional network.

Here is what Ain Online has to say about Jeststar Pacific.

 “…a joint venture between 70-percent owner Vietnam Airlines and Qantas marks the first direct purchase by the airline from Airbus. The aircraft will join an existing fleet of 12 leased A320-family aircraft flying on domestic and regional routes. Jetstar Pacific operates a total of 33 domestic and international routes as part of the larger Jetstar Group network, which includes Jetstar Airways (Australia), Jetstar Japan (Japan) and Jetstar Asia (Singapore)”
