Low-cost carrier Vietjet Air unveiled on June 17 that it had signed a 60-million-USD credit packet with BNP Paribas, a French bank, to buy six Airbus A32 planes at the ongoing Paris Air Show.

Vietjet Air Deputy Director Dinh Viet Phuong said the signing is a new progress in the two sides’ partnership, which has produced fine outcomes in recent years.

Earlier, BNP Paribas consulted Vietjet Air about purchase-and-rent transactions of 100 aircrafts with Airbus.

Besides the credit deal, the Vietnamese airline also inked a 1.5-billion-USD insurance package for its fleet.-VNA
