Vietjet Signs Agreements with SR Technics and Swiss Aviation Software

(29 Nov 2021)  Vietjet has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with SR Technics valued at approximately US$150 million.

Under the agreement, SR Technics will provide MRO services for Vietjet's CFM56-5B engine fleet for its Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft in Bern, Switzerland.

The work will be facilitated at SR Technics' facilities at Zurich Airport in Switzerland and Vietnam.

The MOU includes providing engine maintenance, technical and training services, component requirements and repair, and setting up a new aviation training centre as a joint venture between Vietjet and SR Technics.

Jean-Marc Lenz, SR Technics' CEO said, "We are very proud that Vietjet is committing to a long-term partnership with SR Technics. This confirms their confidence in SR Technics' ability and expertise to provide best-in-class MRO services, including engine maintenance and technical and training support in line with the highest benchmarks in the industry in terms of safety and quality. Therefore, entrusting us to deliver top-quality performance on their engines proves how strong the foundation of our future collaboration is. I look forward to visiting the new aviation training centre, which will be built in Ho Chi Minh city in collaboration with our renowned Vietnamese partner."

Vietjet has also signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Swiss Aviation Software (Swiss-AS), a leading provider of aviation maintenance solutions based in Switzerland.

This deal will extend Vietjet's adoption of Swiss-AS's maintenance and engineering solutions, AMOS, to support Vietjet's fleet.

The two parties will extend their cooperation to cover various scopes, strengthening the existing long-term strategic partnership over the next ten years.

Swiss-AS and its relevant subsidiaries will provide Vietjet with the added AMOS mobile/EXEC platform for aircraft technical management on mobile devices, thus allowing full automation and digitalization for Vietjet's engineers.

In addition, Vietjet will use the system with more capacity and update other AMOS modules to serve better in-house management, including automation of planning, aircraft scheduling and budget management, etc.

Swiss-AS will also provide the AMOS "train the trainer" program for Vietjet with notable frequency and scale in the coming time.

Fabiano Faccoli, Chief Operating Officer of Swiss-AS, said: "It has been an honour for Swiss-AS to support Vietjet in its impressive growth over the last decade. Swiss-AS is looking forward to further strengthening the excellent partnership and, through its AMOS product suite and services, be instrumental in digitalizing Vietjet's Technical Operation. Swiss-AS shares Vietjet's customer-focused strategy and is keen to support Vietjet to further improve productivity and quality through innovation, technology and creativity."

Vietjet has a comprehensive flight network in Vietnam and across Asia Pacific. The airline has resumed domestic flights and operated a series of international flights.

Dinh Viet Phuong, Vietjet Managing Director, said, "The signed agreements between Vietjet and our strategic partners today pave the way for further development, especially in the process of transferring and adopting aviation technologies and setting up aviation academy to positively contribute to the development of Vietnam's aviation industry. We cherish the cooperation, which has been nourished by a long-standing relationship between Vietnam and Switzerland and especially on the occasion of the Vietnamese President's official visit to Switzerland."

The signing ceremonies were witnessed by Vietnam's President Nguyen Xuan Phuc, the President of the Swiss Confederation Guy Parmelin, high-ranking dignitaries and business representatives of both countries during the official visit of the Vietnamese President to Switzerland.
