Vietjet has received full membership from the International Air Transportation Association, affirming the new-age carrier’s role and position in the aviation community, both in Vietnam and overseas.
Prior to attaining this membership, Vietjet had been certified by the IATA Operational Safety Audit, an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.
“I am honoured to congratulate Vietjet on receiving IATA’s full membership,” said Antony Tyer, director general, IATA.
“IATA’s mission is to represent, lead and serve the airline industry and is the collective voice of some 272 airlines from over 117 countries worldwide.
“Our vision is to be the force for value creation and innovation driving a safe, secure and profitable air transport industry that sustainably connects and enriches our world.
“I believe in Vietjet and hope the airline will continue to have more fruitful achievements by maximizing the benefits of being an IATA member.”
This comes in quick succession of Vietjet’s recently announced successful growth throughout 2016, with revenue of US$1.21 billion and profit of US$105 million.
