The viral bikini airlines VietJet has just bought 100 planes from aviation company Boeing for USD11 billion – that means, more bikini-wearing stewardess might be at your service!
Signed in conjunction with President Obama’s visit to Vietnam with the attendance of Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang, Vietjet CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao had sealed the deal with the purchase of 100 737 MAX 200 airplanes, the largest purchase of its kind in Vietnam aviation history.
“Incorporating the latest design and technology features, the highly efficient 737 MAX 200 will provide VietJet’s growing network with market-leading economics, a superior passenger experience and contribute significantly to their future success,” Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner said as quoted by USA Today.
Thanks to its brave PR stunt, until today, the airline is best known for having beauty pageant contestants performing Hawaiian-themed dance on-board on one of its flights.
Even though it was fined for that incident, the flight is known for holding celebratory in-flight fashion shows from time to time.
VietJet Air will begin its Southeast Asian routes starting from 1 June onwards.
The flight ticket from Kuala Lumpur Malaysia to Ho Chi Minh City costs only MYR371, but if you had booked the tickets earlier on, you might’ve be able to fly for FREE!
