The A321neo, registered as VN-646, is powered by Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation GTF engines.

Fitted out with 230 comfy leather covered seats and high quality carpeting, the first five rows of Vietjet’s spacious new A321neo have been specially designed to accommodate passengers flying Skyboss, the airline’s premium service.

The brand new A321neo incorporates the latest in engine design, advanced aerodynamics and cabin innovations.

According to the aircraft manufacturer, its GTF engines offer a significant reduction in fuel consumption - saving at least 16 percent from day one and 20 percent by 2020 - as well 75% reduction in noise and 50% in emissions. The engines were first introduced by Pratt & Whitney in 2016.

Vietjet is one of the very first airlines in the world to incorporate the engines in its aircraft. This is also the 17th aircraft delivered to Vietjet from Airbus in 2017.

The new aircraft will begin operating on domestic and international routes to and from Vietnam from this month./.
