CAI and Vietjet collaborate to develop aviation services supply in Vietnam

Changi Airports International, Vietjet, and SOVICO Group have signed an collaborative agreement worth $1.5 billion, to develop aviation services at airports across Vietnam.


During the Vietnamese President’s official visit to Singapore, SOVICO Group, Vietjet, and Changi Airports International (CAI), the international arm of Changi Airport Group (CAG), have signed a strategic partnership agreement worth $1.5 billion to develop the provision of aviation services at airports in Vietnam and in the region.

The signing ceremony was witnessed by Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and high-ranking dignitaries of Vietnam and Singapore, business representatives of the two countries and representatives of SOVICO Group, Vietjet, and CAI.

The signing marks the first time that a private corporation and an airline in Vietnam collaborate with an international airport group to develop aviation services and facilities. The parties will co-operate in the research and development of projects at airports in Vietnam, which include green, sustainable, and smart infrastructure development projects.

Eugene Gan, CEO of Changi Airports International commented: “We believe that our expertise and geographical experience in managing airports around the world will add value to Vietjet and related partners in raising development and management standards to optimise airport-related operations; hence promoting economic development, boosting connectivity in Vietnam and in the region. Our approaches always prioritise sustainability with close attention to the global ecosystem and surrounding catchment.”

“Through the partnership with an industry expert such as Changi Airports International, we seek to contribute to the development and improvement of aviation services standards in Vietnam and in the region,” added Dr. Nguyen Thanh Hung, Vietjet Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors. “The partnership further expresses our commitment to economic development goals, especially in aviation and sustainable development. The signing is significantly crucial in the context that the two countries are gradually opening up in a post-pandemic environment, creating more motivation for Vietjet to further expand its flight network in Vietnam and international markets.”

With years of airport management and development knowledge, CAI is implementing a broad range of collaborations to play a part in elevating standards of airports globally.

Accompanying Vietjet, SOVICO Group has always been a pioneer for aviation development in Vietnam and in the region by forging international collaborations that develop aviation facilities, bringing benefits to the industry in Vietnam as well as residents and tourists domestically and internationally.

Vietjet operates a comprehensive network in Vietnam and Asia Pacific. The airline currently has resumed its entire domestic flight network and operated a series of international flights from and to Vietnam while looking to further expand operations across continents in the near future.
