VTV.vn - National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines has received its first Airbus A321neo from US-based Aviation Capital Group (ACG) in Hamburg, Germany.

The new aircraft will be used for domestic flights and routes connecting destinations in Southeast Asia. It is among the 20 new-generation A321neo planes the airline plans to lease from the ACG, ICBC Leasing of China, and US-based Air Lease Corporation (ALC), which are expected to be fully delivered by the end of next year. These planes will help expand the airlines' aircraft fleet to about 110 by 2020. The event was said to mark a milestone in Vietnam Airlines' ongoing programme to upgrade its narrow-body fleet as well as its 4-star service quality. Last year, Vietnam Airlines was named “World’s Leading Cultural Airline” at the 2017 World Travel Awards.
