Vietjet and SAF One Alliance

In a bid to champion sustainability, Vietjet is set to collaborate with SAF One for the development, supply, and utilization of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) within Vietnam.

This move positions Vietjet as a trailblazing airline dedicated to researching, developing, and utilizing sustainable aviation fuel.

SAF, derived from waste materials like used cooking oil, emerges as a game-changer in reducing environmental carbon emissions compared to traditional fuels.

Hani Kuzbari, Co-CEO of Novus Aviation Capital, underscores the significance of this partnership. He states,

“Partnering with Vietjet on these ventures is a testament to Novus Aviation Capital’s commitment to advancing the aviation industry through developing innovative solutions and structures.”

Vietjet’s CEO, Dinh Viet Phuong, emphasizes the multifaceted benefits of the agreement with Novus.

“Our agreement with Novus will enhance Vietjet’s financial capacity to meet the needs of growth, investment, and expansion of our flight network and aircraft fleet in the coming time,” he affirms.

Furthermore, Vietjet aims to align with global aviation trends, providing high-quality air travel products while taking a pivotal step in sustainable development through the use of SAF.
