Vietjet has been named ‘the Low-Cost Carrier of the Year’ and ‘the Belly Carrier of the Year’ by Payload Asia, an international magazine for air freight industry.
The 7th Payload Asia Awards acknowledge the best companies in the air cargo market, including global carriers, airports, logistic suppliers of the year, putting the spotlight on services that benefit the rising e-commerce market.
“Vietjet wins the double awards this year thanks to its agility in air cargo strategy since March 2020, the very early stage of the global pandemic,” said Payload Asia Editor Giullian Navarra. “With outstanding cargo activities throughout the year which helped to fill the logistics gap in the regional and global supply chain, the carrier has impressively demonstrated its excellence to the industry professionals”.
“We’re very delighted to receive such an international recognition for Vietjet’s air cargo activities in a very challenging year of 2020. I believe that the freight operation of Vietjet in particular and of global airlines will get much busier in the coming time,” Vietjet Cargo CEO Do Xuan Quang said.
Vietjet in 2020 configured some of its passenger aircraft for freight transportation purpose while applying new operational methods to strengthen its cargo service capacity. The airline has since delivered more than 60,000 tons of cargo transnationally, with its freight revenue leaping by 75% from the previous year’s.
Through interline agreements, Vietjet’s cargo also landed in America and Europe for the first time in 2020. The airline is set to be among a few airlines in the world reporting positive consolidated financial statement for 2020.
