– First Training by Airbus agreement in Vietnam.
– Supporting Vietjet’s expansion whilst bringing the Airbus’ and EASA’s high standards into its training organization
Airbus has signed an agreement to provide flight and maintenance training services to Vietjet in Ho Chi Minh City. With this agreement, Vietjet‘s flight training centre will host an Airbus A320 Full-Flight Simulator (FFS) to conduct flight crew training for its A320 family fleet.
In addition, the agreement provides Maintenance training services via the Airbus training media and courseware including its dynamic trainers and teaching techniques. These will be delivered within the Airbus Competence Training (ACT*) classroom concept, whilst bringing Airbus’ and EASA’s standards to the Vietjet Training Organization.
Dinh Viet Phuong, Vice President of Vietjet says: “Vietjet and Airbus have effectively collaborated with each other and this agreement once again marks a new milestone for both organizations. Airbus’s training expertise will help enforce Vietjet’s capabilities in flight and maintenance training to be in line with the internationally recognized standards. Investment in an aviation institute is one of the most important goals in Viejtet’s sustainable growth strategies.”

Teaming-up with Vietjet is a major milestone to deliver Training by Airbus in the region, and it ensures more efficient service, support and proximity to our customers.”
