Vietnam’s low-cost carrier Vietjet earlier this week announced the addition of the world’s first 240-seat Airbus A321neo ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex) to its steadily growing fleet.

The A321neo ACF arrived at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City on Thursday morning, Vietjet said in a press release.

The new ‘Cabin Flex’ adds an extra 20 seats in a standard all-economy design to the previous Airbus A321neo, boosting the number of passengers from 220 to 240 while still providing standard leg space, ensuring a comfortable flight experience for all passengers.

According to Airbus, the A321neo ACF aircraft doesn’t just feature an innovated cabin structure, it also consumes a minimum of 16 percent less fuel per flight and emits 75 and 50 percent less noise and emissions, respectively.

Vietjet said it will put the new Airbus into operation immediately on its mid-haul flights.

The low-cost airline services its 129 domestic and international routes with a fleet of 67 Airbus aircraft. The fleet’s average age is just 2.7 years.
