In the beginning of its establishment, VietJet Air got off to a rocky start. Originally, VietJet Air was going to be launched at the end of 2008. However, the plan kept being held off to the beginning of 2009, and then to mid-2010. The delay was mainly caused by the rise of fuel prices, which induced financial problems to the airline, and by the global economic crisis of the late 2000s, which generally affected the Vietnamese economy. In 2010, low-budget airline AirAsia bought 30% of VietJet Air’s shares. In the same year, VietJet Air was granted the permission to perform its first flight. Unfortunately, the flight was once again suspended due to an unresolved issue with the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV). VietJet Air’s operation license was going to expire in June 2011, but until February 2011, the airline was reportedly still completing the final stages of its launch. By October 2011, AirAsia announced that it had canceled its cooperation with VietJet Air because it could not reach an agreement with Vietnamese authorities on several terms, including to put the AirAsia logo on VietJet Air commercial operations. VietJet Air was officially launched in December 2011, becoming the second private airline to provide domestic flight services in Vietnam after Air Mekong. VietJet Air also became the fifth airline after Jetstar Pacific Airlines, Vietnam Airlines, Vietnam Air Service Company (VASC), and Air Mekong with the best domestic civil aviation services. VietJet Air had declared its plans to provide flights to Ho Chi Minh and Da Nang, and its intention to expand its network to other countries in Asia, such as Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea, Myanmar, Malaysia, China, and Japan. With Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao as CEO and President since 2011, VietJet Air now has its headquarters in Ba Dinh, Hanoi, with four hubs. In February 2013, VietJet Air finally made its first international flight service from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok, and became the first Vietnamese private airline that entered the international market. Furthermore in December 2014, VietJet Air launched its subsidiary, Thai VietJet Air, which also runs a low-budget flight service. Thai VietJet Air has its headquarters in 100/519 Moo 2, Chaeng-Wattana Rd with one hub in Suvarnabhumi Airport. At the opening of Singapore Air Show in 2014, VietJet Air strengthened its fleets by adding as many as 60 Airbus A320 worth US$6.4 billion after signing a Memorandum of Understanding for ordering 92 Airbus A320 in the previous period. At the Paris Air Show in June 2015, VietJet Air added its fleet again by purchasing six more Airbus A321 to meet the demands of its popular travel routes. Meanwhile, at the Dubai Air Show in November 2015, VietJet Air purchased 30 aircraft, consisting of 21 Airbus A321neo and nine Airbus A321ceo. In addition, VietJet Air also chartered another 10 A391 aircraft from Air Berlin Group, who delivered them in 2016 – 2017. During the 2016 visit of the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, VietJet Air announced it had signed an order for 100 Boeing 737 MAX 200 aircraft, which will be shipped starting from 2019. In the same year, during the visit of the President of France, Francois Hollande, the airline signed an order of 20 Airbus A321s. Until 2016, VietJet Air has had as many as 45 modern and environmentally friendly aircraft. VietJet Air is the first airline in Vietnam to own the modern Airbus A320 Sharklet, capable of carrying as many as 188 passengers in each flight. Furthermore, VietJet Air also owns Airbus A321 aircraft, capable of carrying 230 passengers. This aircraft is known for being reliable, economical, and environmentally friendly. VietJet Air also often decorates the body of its aircraft with striking images. Having painted its planes with characters from the Disney animation Planes, VietJet Air has been named the Liveliest Fleet in the World. Besides working with Disney, Vietjet Air’s red and yellow colors have also been host to the Vietnamese national tourism logo, pictures of the airline's cabin crew, and photos of former Miss Vietnam May Phuong Thuy and actor Johnny Tri Nguyen for media promotion purposes. By working closely with the world's leading beverage company, Pepsico, some of Vietjet Air’s fleets are painted with the Pepsi logo. To realize its ambition, the airline is also working with many banks, such as HDBank and BIDV. Today, VietJet Air serves international routes with more than 30 destinations including Thailand, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, China, Malaysia, and Japan. The airline is using Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, which have only been operating an average of three years, in its daily operation. With various domestic and international accolades, VietJet Air will continue to do its best by bringing fresh innovation to provide better services. Furthermore, to improve the comfort and safety of all passengers, VietJet Air employs professional and international-standard cabin crew of pilots and flight attendants, who will ensure the safety and comfort of all VietJet Air’s passengers during the flight.
