Vietnam Airlines has taken delivery of one new Airbus A321-200neo aircraft from lessor Air Lease Corporation (ALC).

This aircraft is the first of 12 new A321-200neos scheduled to deliver to Vietnam Airlines through 2019 from ALC’s order book with Airbus. Further A321neo deliveries will take place in the coming weeks.

ALC executive chairman, Steven F. Udvar-Házy said: “This new delivery strengthens our long-standing relationship as Vietnam Airlines continues to excel as one of the fastest growing airlines in Asia with the most modern, fuel-efficient aircraft.”

In addition to the 12 new Airbus A321-200neo aircraft, Vietnam Airlines is also confirmed to take delivery of eight Boeing 787-10s from ALC starting in the third quarter of 2019 through 2021.

The carrier currently has two A330-200s on lease from ALC, for a total of 22 aircraft on lease to the airline.
