Vietjet President & CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao received the “Asia Pacific Low Cost Airline of the Year 2019” award, which was presented by CAPA Chairman Emeritus Peter Harbison.

The CAPA awards aims to annually acknowledge the airline that has been the biggest standout strategically, established itself as a leader, and has been the biggest innovator, providing a benchmark for others to follow during the year in the regional aviation industry.

The award honored Vietjet for the airline’s strong expansion of its international network. This is a highly attractive position given Vietnam’s favorable economic prospects and fast-growing market.

“Vietjet continues to break the mould for a traditional low cost airline,” said CAPA Chairman Emeritus Peter Harbison. “The company has a solid financial foundation and a game plan to formidably challenge some of largest operators in Asia Pacific for decades to come.”

Vietjet President & CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao said: “Vietjet’s mission is to make breakthrough changes in the aviation industry’s services. We are thankful for the trust, companionship and recognition from CAPA, the most renowned aviation organization in the Asia Pacific.”
