VietJet Air has ordered 15 of CFM International’s CFM56-5B engines which will be installed on its newly ordered A321ceo aircraft.

The agreement, signed on Tuesday (November 10) at the Dubai Airshow, is valued at more than $700m at list price.

It also includes spare engines and a long-term service agreement, with the Ho Chi Minh City-based airline signing a 12-year rate per flight hour contract to cover the A321ceos.

Madame Thao Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, CEO of VietJet Air, said: "The reliability and operating economics of the CFM56-5B engine are the best in the industry and have helped us stay true to our core values of safety, affordable price, and punctuality."
