Vietjet has signed a memorandum of understanding in Hanoi with Aviation New Zealand.
Nguyen Duc Tam, vice president of Vietjet and John Nicholson, chief executive of Aviation New Zealand signed the landmark deal in the presence of dignitaries from the two countries.
Both parties will now look to collaborate in services and initiatives related to safety and security.
Vietjet will receive training, air navigation, equipment supplies, business systems and consultancy and advisory services over the next five years.
Nicholson said: “Aviation has been one of the priorities for collaboration between New Zealand and Vietnam and will be further strengthened in the coming years.
“I am delighted with the MOU signed today between Aviation New Zealand and Vietjet, which will facilitate New Zealand experts and engineers to exchange information, provide technical and managerial assistance and offer training programs including flight crew, engineering and air navigation, et cetera, to Vietjet.
“I hope the collaboration will further boost the airline’s growth across the international market.”
Vietjet currently operates 190 flights per day across 35 routes, domestically and internationally.
The airline recently won IOSA Certification from the International Air Transport Association after just three years of operations.
Also speaking at the event, Nguyen Duc Tam said: “As a growing, dynamic new-age airline, Vietjet considers security, safety and airworthiness as top priorities along with fleet and network expansion, service improvement, our trademark promotions and, of course, customer care.
“Collaboration with such a renowned organization like Aviation New Zealand will enforce our determination and continuous investment in developing Vietjet as a favourite airline not just in Vietnam but also all across Asia in the coming years.”
