Of course, safety is paramount in the airline business, and Vietjet doesn’t take it lightly. With rigorous training programs and top-notch maintenance facilities, they’ve earned their reputation as one of the safest low-cost airlines worldwide and were yet again part of the recent Airline Ratings safety awards.

And let’s not forget about education. Vietjet’s Aviation Academy is shaping the next generation of aviation professionals, with thousands of students passing through their doors each year. In 2023, VJAA trained over 97,000 students through 6,300 courses, actively providing training for pilots and aircraft maintenance staff (CRS). The academy also installed its third flight simulator, becoming a top-notch pilot training center in the region.

So, there you have it – Vietjet’s journey of growth, sustainability, and safety. With their eyes set on the future, they’re definitely a force to be reckoned with in the aviation world.
