European plane maker Airbus SE (AIR.FR) said Thursday that VietJet Aviation (VJC.VH) ordered 15 A321XLR aircraft and would convert an order for five A321neo aircraft from its existing backlog to A321XLR.
VietJet will be among the first airlines to receive the long-range A321XLR, Airbus said. The order will allow VietJet to expand its network, flying longer routes across Asia, the company said.
VietJet also signed a new training agreement with Airbus Services, Airbus said, which involves Airbus positioning two new A320 Family full-flight simulators at the carrier's training center. Airbus will also provide training services to the airline and its instructors, the company said.
