Vietjet and Changi Airports sign deal for services supply in Vietnam
SOVICO Group, Vietjet and Changi Airports International (CAI), the international arm of Changi Airport Group, have signed a strategic partnership agreement worth US$1.5 billion to develop the provision of aviation services at airports in Vietnam and in the region. The signing marks the first time that a private corporation and an airline in Vietnam collaborate with an international airport group to develop aviation services and facilities. The parties will cooperate in the research and development of projects at airports in Vietnam, which include green, sustainable and smart infrastructure development projects.
Eugene Gan, CEO of Changi Airports International, said: “We believe that our expertise and geographical experience in managing airports around the world will add value to Vietjet and related partners in raising development and management standards to optimise airport-related operations; hence promoting economic development, boosting connectivity in Vietnam and in the region. Our approaches always prioritise sustainability with close attention to the global ecosystem and surrounding catchment.”
Dr. Nguyen Thanh Hung, Vietjet vice chairman of the board of directors, said: “Through the partnership with an industry expert such as Changi Airports International, we seek to contribute to the development and improvement of aviation services standards in Vietnam and in the region. The partnership further expresses our commitment to economic development goals, especially in aviation and sustainable development. The signing is significantly crucial in the context that the two countries are gradually opening up in a post-pandemic environment, creating more motivation for Vietjet to further expand its flight network in Vietnam and international markets.”
