The plane coded VN-A897 is the first A350 aircraft in the world which has been decorated with logos of the global airline alliance SkyTeam and Vietnam Airlines on its body.
The airplane will be put into use on the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City route starting April 15. It is the 12th out of total 14 Airbus A350-900 aircraft that VNA ordered earlier.
The carrier will receive the rest two aircraft in 2019.
Vietnam Airlines has been certified as a 4-star airline by the UK airline and airport rating organisation Skytrax.
Airbus A350-900 is among the world’s most modern and advanced wide-body aircrafts.
VNA said it is planning to change aircrafts which are able to help save energy and environmental friendly. This move is aimed to promote its brand name to be the first carrier in Asia to own the wide-body aircraft types.
