Vietjet Air to postpone launching operations to Oct-2010

15-Jun-2010 11:41 AM

Vietjet Air reportedly plans to postpone launching operations to Oct-2010, as it is yet to settle issues relating to its brand, sales, personnel and fleet (VnExpress, 14-Jun-2010). It had planned to launch operations in May-2010. The carrier is reportedly still in the process of developing a new name for its JV with AirAsia. It had planned to launch commercial operations under the name Vietjet-AirAsia, however the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) has advised the carrier it cannot use this name, due to concerns it will lead passengers to confuse the carrier with AirAsia. Vietjet has now hired consultants to design a new logo and brand for the carrier.
