The US aircraft manufacturer Boeing was able to land a major order from Vietnam Airlines. The carrier secured an order for 50 B737-Max. First the White House confirmed the deal, later also the airline and the manufacturer.
Vietnam Airlines has been a Boeing customer for a long time, but recently only in the long-haul sector. On short and medium-haul routes, aircraft operated exclusively by European competitor Airbus are operated. For him, the fact that the Americans won the race should be a real disgrace.
“In line with Vietnam Airlines’ 2025-2030 fleet strategy and 2035 vision, the aircraft investments are a crucial project that supports the airline’s positive recovery momentum and bright prospects,” said Dang Ngoc Hoa, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Vietnam Airlines.
Boeing is proud to have landed the major order. Brad McMullen, Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales and Marketing, highlights, among other things, that Vietnam Airlines has been a customer since 1995. At that time, the company leased a B767 for the first time. The fact that the carrier has now decided on 50 B737-Max is seen as a great sign of trust.
