HCM CITY – The Civil Aviation Authority of Việt Nam received the Council President Certificate from Council of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in Hà Nội on Thursday.
The certificate recognises Việt Nam’s significant progress in resolving safety oversight deficiencies and improving implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices.
ICAO’s delegation is visiting Việt Nam from July 5-10. As part of their visit, the delegation met with high-ranking dignities of the Vietnamese Government and the Ministry of Transport on the same day.
During the trip to Vietjet’s office in HCM City on Wednesday, ICAO president Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu praised the airline’s efforts and achievements in operations, services and management.
The ICAO president also focused on the airline’s comprehensive investment in building human resources and training highly skilled experts to meet internationally standardised safety requirements for operation and management, which greatly contributed not only to the airline’s success but also to the growth of the aviation industry in Việt Nam and the region.
Vietjet managing director Lưu Đức Khánh said the airline has given top priority to adhering to safety requirements, which has been the guideline for the airline in all operation and policy decisions it has made.
“Our technical reliability rate stood at 99.59 per cent in the first quarter of the year, and flight operation, ground operation and engineering safety indicators were also listed in the group of highest-quality airlines in the Asia Pacific region,” he said. — VNS
