Vietnamese low-cost carrier VietJet has agreed an order with Boeing for 100 737 MAX 200 aircraft worth $11.3bn at current list prices.

The transaction was signed at a ceremony in Hanoi on Monday (May 23) by VietJet president and CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao and Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing’s commercial aircraft division.

The agreement is the largest ever commercial aircraft purchase from a Vietnamese airline and will see the LEAP-1B powered narrowbodies enter the VietJet fleet from 2019 through to 2023.

VietJet, which is looking to grow its domestic and international networks, currently operates an all Airbus fleet of A320 and A321 aircraft but said that once the Boeing order is complete along with other commitments by 2023, its fleet will grow to more than 200 aircraft.
