Vietnam Airlines augments fleet with Airbus A320neo

Vietnam Airlines received the first of three new Airbus A320neos, expanding its fleet in time for the height of summer travel.

Vietnam Airlines assigns the new aircraft to domestic routes, including Hanoi to Dalat, Hanoi to Phu Quoc, Ho Chi Minh City to Thanh Hoa, along with Ho Chi Minh City to Chu Lai.  

The addition of the three Airbus A320neo units reaffirms Vietnam Airlines’ commitment to fleet modernisation and operational enhancement to meet increasing travel demand, especially during the summer season.

This is a timely decision on the part of the carrier in light of the ongoing global aircraft shortage caused by engine recalls. 

Adding these aircraft to Vietnam Airlines’ existing fleet adds nearly 40,000 seats for the season and a potential 300,000 seats throughout the second half of this year. 

Along with these new acquisitions from Airbus, Vietnam Airlines is set to receive new wide-body Boeing 787-10s in the near future.

The Boeing 787-10 is the largest member of the Dreamliner family and the largest passenger aircraft in Vietnam Airlines’ current fleet.

The Airbus difference

The modern narrow-body Airbus A320neo features next-generation engines, significantly resulting in 16 percent fuel savings, 75 percent noise reduction, and 50 percent lower emissions compared to older aircraft.  

This Airbus A320neo has 182 seats and is configured in a two-class layout, with eight Business Class seats and 174 Economy Class seats, complemented by comfortable upholstery; 28- to 29-inch seat pitch and five-inch recline; and a wireless IFE system on top of other amenities.

These cabin enhancements offer an improved passenger experience while retaining a strong commitment to environmental protection.
