Vietnamese airlines now using environmentally-friendly aircraft to realise net-zero emission targets

HANOI (Xinhua): Vietnamese airlines have worked hard to implement the net-zero emission targets by using new generation aircraft in their operation, which are more environmentally friendly thanks to advanced technologies, Vietnam News Agency reported Monday.

The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines will start operating wide-body aircraft on routes between capital Hanoi and the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Beijing, alongside Airbus A321, from June this year.

Wide-body aircraft will be used for all flights between Vietnam's southern Ho Chi Minh City and Shanghai from July.

The new generation aircraft have integrated advanced technology that helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions, said the report.

According to the Science, Technology and Environment Department under the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, Vietnamese airlines are actively completing documentation to participate in the process of carbon reduction and offsetting.

Vietnam aims to transition to using 100 per cent green energy, sustainable aviation fuel for aircraft to minimize greenhouse gas emissions. - Xinhua
