By April this year, airlines in Vietnam operated 222 planes, including 94 by Vietnam Airlines and Vietnam Air Services Company, 67 by VietJet Air, 18 by Jetstar Pacific and 10 by Bamboo Airways.
With the approved aeroplanes for Vietjet Air and Bamboo, the total number of planes will be 251 by the year-end and the figure would reach more than 400 by 2030.
