 European planemaker Airbus said Vietnam Airlines were among its three largest customers at the 2009 Paris Air Show, which wrapped up in France late last week.

Vietnam Airlines ordered 16 Airbus A321 single-aisle jets worth US$1.4 billion and pledged to buy two more A350-XWB planes.

“Vietnam will remain one of the key growth markets in Asia in coming years,” Airbus quoted its president and CEO Tom Enders as saying at a news conference in Paris on June 16, the day Vietnam Airlines ordered the aircraft.

Meanwhile, Qatar Airways in the Middle East placed an order for 24 single-aisle aircraft valued at US$1.9 billion. Air Asia X ordered 10 A350-900s valued at US$2.4 billion.

Vietnam Airlines currently operates a fleet of 52 aircraft and flies to 19 domestic and 23 international destinations.

Earlier this year, the Vietnamese carrier’s CEO Pham Ngoc Minh said his corporation was striving to improve its service quality to become Southeast Asia’s second biggest airline after Singapore Airlines in 2015.
