This is the first A350 aircraft in the world to showcase the SkyTeam livery with Vietnam Airlines logo on the fuselage.
Le Hong Ha, executive vice president of Vietnam Airlines, said: “The unified livery demonstrates the vision and mission of Vietnam Airlines in the international integration, bilateral and multilateral cooperation with other airlines and global alliances to bring increased benefits to customers.
“The special paint scheme is also part of Vietnam Airlines’ ongoing effort to provide a new flying experience to passenger and continuously accomplish its goal of becoming Asia’s largest airline.”
Vietnam Airlines is recognised as the World’s Leading Cultural Airline by the World Travel Awards.
Perry Cantarutti, SkyTeam chief executive, said: “As a valued member of SkyTeam for over eight years, we would like to congratulate Vietnam Airlines on the delivery of their 12th and very beautiful A350.
“We are of course, extra proud of this particular plane as it will fly the SkyTeam livery around the world. We look forward to seeing it on the runway and in the skies.”
After eight years as a member of SkyTeam alliance, Vietnam Airlines has made serious efforts to implement SkyTeam’s key projects in passenger service to enhance benefits to customers.
It is expected that the aircraft will be put into operation on the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh city route.
From now, the last two of A350-900 out of a total of 14 are due to be delivered in 2019.
