The budget airlines VietJetAir on April 22 signed an agreement with AWAS, one of the world's leading aircraft leasing companies, to lease three brand-new Sharklet-equipped A320 aircraft.

The move makes VietJetAir the first airline in the country to have a new fuel-saving wing-tip device.

The new Sharklet-equipped A320 aircraft will assist VietJetAir with its plans to expand into ASEAN and northern Asia to regional destinations such as Kuala Lumpur, Busan, Seoul, Singapore and Taipei.-VNA
