Vietnam Airlines negotiates with Airbus and Boeing

Vietnam Airlines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 10 A350-900 XWBs, as well as for 20 additional A321s. With this further commitment for Airbus aircraft, Vietnam Airlines becomes a strategic customer for the A350 XWB programme. Furthermore, with this commitment for the A350 and for additional A321s, Vietnam Airlines will become one of the largest Airbus operators in Asia.
Vietnam Airlines currently operates a fleet of 23 Airbus aircraft, including 10 A320s, 10 A321s and three A330s (two –200s and one –300). Five previously ordered A321s are still to be delivered.
On the other hand, Vietnam Airlines has indicated its plan to move forward with additional Boeing 787 Dreamliner procurements.Vietnam Airlines was the seventh airline to commit to the 787 and currently has four 787-8s on order with Boeing.
The 787 provides an outstanding complement to the current Vietnam Airlines fleet of 10 Boeing 777-200ERs.
The 787 will provide superior fuel efficiency, as well as reduced emissions and noise, while providing an enhanced cabin experience for passengers.
Boeing looks forward to working with Vietnam Airlines in reaching a finalized agreement.
