Vietjet: We do not fly Boeing 737 MAX aircraft
Vietjet does not operate any flights with Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. We are currently operating with a fleet entirely composed of new Airbus aircraft from the A320 family aircraft. The average age of our fleet is 2.82 years. We are also using latest generation of Airbus aircraft, A320-A321 neo.
Furthermore, Vietjet’s operations meet the highest international standards with regard to safety and maintenance. In particular, we have complied with all of the regulations and met the latest standards which have been set out by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States (FAA) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), including the approval of aircraft type for our operation.
The safety for passengers is always Vietjet’s highest priority. Now we are closely monitoring the Boeing 737 MAX case and our decisions related to these aircraft will be made after the official conclusions and guidelines of the world’s aviation authorities and the CAAV. We are doing this to ensure the development of our modern fleet and to meet the highest quality and safety standards. Vietjet has well managed our fleet so far and our transport business plans are unchanged.
