Vietnam Airlines has decided to use Jet A1 fuel from the Dung Quat Oil Refinery for its fleets from June 30, said the general director of the Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical Co, Nguyen Hoai Giang.

The refinery this year is expected to produce about 400,000 tonnes of Jet A1, meeting roughly 40 percent of Vietnam Airlines' demand.

The Binh Son Co, which manages the Dung Quat refinery, received international qualified certificates from the Norway DNV Register in March this year. Since last August, it has sold 20,000 tonnes of the fuel to domestic and international airlines./.
