Vietjet and Rolls-Royce on Monday signed a US$400 million agreement to provide engines and engine services for the airline’s coming widebody fleet.

Vietnam’s Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and high-ranking dignitaries of Vietnam and the United Kingdom attended the signing ceremony that was held during the Prime Minister’s attendance at COP26, the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties.

“The Trent 700 has the lowest lifetime fuel burn and the best economics on its aircraft type,” said Ewen McDonald, Chief Customer Officer, Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace. “In addition, our TotalCare service will help Vietjet maximise the value of its engine assets and increase time-on-wing performance. We look forward to working with Vietjet as they expand their geographical footprint.”

“We believe that the Trent 700 engines will bring a technology breakthrough to Vietjet’s fleet, helping improve flight range and quality and thereby boosting our aircraft’s technical reliability and operational efficiency,”: said Vietjet Managing Director Dinh Viet Phuong. “The engines are also expected to make our fleet more synchronous.”
