VietJetAir has signed a strategic partnership agreement with China Construction Bank (CCB) and CCB Financial Leasing Corporation Limited, the private carrier announced on November 1.

The agreement would facilitate cooperation between the three sides in financing and aircraft leasing, including aircraft engines and other capital high-value aviation materials and equipment, it said.

It was among VietJetAir's initial steps in financing the order of 100 aircraft with Airbus last month. The first batch of this order is due for handover next year.

This addition would help VietJetAir develop a new generation and modern fleet in the Asia Pacific, it said.-VNA
