In recent years, Vietnam has grown to become a favorite tourist destination for international travelers eager to discover some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, the rich and varied local cuisine, in particular one of the world’s most developed street food scenes, and some of the most delicious coffee in the world. Tourists are always charmed by the warm, friendly and hospitable locals in Vietnam, which is also home to breathtaking natural scenery and heritage sites, such as the world’s largest cave “Sơn Đoòng,” Halong Bay, the former imperial city of Hue, and the ancient port town of Hoi An and My Son sanctuary.
To meet increasing demand, Vietjet has received its newest aircraft, an A320 (coded VN-A663), landed at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport. The aircraft is the 28th aircraft, and also the ninth of the milestone agreement between Vietjet and Airbus for acquisition and leasing 100 aircraft.
