Vingroup’s Vinpearl Air will launch the first commercial flight in July 2020 with a fleet of six planes.
The Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam has reported to the Ministry of Transport. Vinpearl Air combines both traditional and low-cost aviation with a total investment of VND4.7trn. Vinpearl Air will open both international and domestic flights with a fleet of six planes. Their plan is to expand the fleet to 36 planes in 2025.
They will open 62 domestic flight routes and 93 international routes.
According to the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, the establishment of Vinpearl Air is included in the plan to develop new airlines and create more favourable conditions for private economic development. It is also in line with the government’s air transport development policy.
However, after reviewing the plan to develop the fleet of Vietnamese airlines by 2020, the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam said that if Vinpearl Air expanded their fleet to 36 planes, there would be too many planes in operation if Vinpearl Air expanded its fleet to only 30 planes.
On August 16, the aviation training facilities of Vingroup has started recruiting students. The students will be trained for 26 months and be ensured of jobs following graduation.
