Low-cost carrier Vietjet Air has become a full member of the International Air Transportation Association (IATA) after securing IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification.

The carrier received certification after just three years of operations thanks to its efforts in quality and safety.

Vietjet recently received investment approval from the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee to develop an aviation technology center at the Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP). On a total area of 5.54 ha, the center is part of a program to develop the Vietjet Aviation Academy at SHTP, with ground expected to be broken in March and full operations to begin in December. Its first phase will feature a flight simulator for pilot training, run in cooperation with aircraft manufacturer Airbus.
