Phan Xuan Duc, Executive Vice President of Vietnam Airlines, said: "The 787 is one of the keys to our fleet expansion plans, and plays a vital role in enabling us to offer customers four-star quality of service and establish Vietnam Airlines among the leading carriers in Asia."
Dinesh Keskar, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific & India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, commented: "The 787 Dreamliner has enabled Vietnam Airlines to profitably operate key routes such as Hanoi to Heathrow and Ho Chi Minh City to Sydney, while providing their customers with the best passenger experience available."
The aircraft manufacturer claimed tha Dreamliner is an all-new, super-efficient family of commercial airplanes that brings big-jet ranges and speed to the middle of the market.
Vietnam Airlines now operates a fleet of 90 aircraft, including 10 Dreamliners.
