The relationship is strong between Safran Aircraft Engines and VietJet Air. The French engine manufacturer and the Vietnamese airline signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on 27th March to strengthen their strategic partnership.

With this future agreement, Safran Aircraft Engines will assist the development of VietJet Air "through the acquisition of future aircraft, fleet management and training services and assistance for the introduction of on-site support capacities".

VietJet Air is already a customer of Safran Aircraft Engines via its joint enterprise CFM International (with GE Aviation). It operates 57 Airbus A320s, equipped with CFM56-5Bs, and has ordered 100 Boeing 737 MAXs, which will be powered by LEAP-1Bs. These aircraft will start to arrive from next year.

During last Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, the Vietnamese airline opted for SFCO2, Safran's data analysis service, for five years.
