SINGAPORE – Vietjet Aviation Joint Stock Company (“Vietjet”) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with The Boeing Company, paving the way for both companies to collaborate on future business opportunities.
 
Mr. Nguyen Thanh Hung, Vice Chairman of Vietjet’s Board of Management, and Mr. Stanley Roth, Vice President, Boeing International Government Relations signed the deal in the presence of His Excellency Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, in his first official visit to the United States to mark the 20th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations between the United States and Vietnam.

The airline currently operates a fleet of 25 A321 and A320 aircraft across 32 routes domestically and internationally, and plans to add four more aircraft by the end of 2015. During the recent Paris Air Show, Vietjet also ordered six additional A321 aircraft for delivery in 2017.
