Vietjet and Aviation New Zealand have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Hanoi to evaluate and exploit mutually beneficial collaboration opportunities.
Moving forward, both parties will now look to collaborate in services and initiatives related to safety, security and airworthiness. Aviation New Zealand will also provide Vietjet with training, air navigation, equipment supplies, business systems and consultancy and advisory services over the next five years.
“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,” continued Nguyen Duc Tam, vice president of Vietjet. “Collaboration with such a renowned organisation 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.”
John Nicholson, general manager of Aviation New Zealand, commented, “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.”
