HCM CITY — Vietjet has been recognised as one of the world’s top 10 safest and best low-cost airlines in 2021 by airline safety and product rating website AirlineRatings.
Other carriers on the list are Ryanair, EasyJet, Frontier, Wizz and Westjet.
AirlineRatings also rated Vietjet at the highest seven-star level for the third consecutive year.
In making its evaluation, AirlineRatings accounts for a comprehensive range of factors including records of safety compliance and incident handling. This year, the airline’s COVID-19 prevention rating is also taken into consideration.
According to AirlineRatings editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas, all these airlines are standouts in the industry and are at the forefront of safety, innovation and operational excellence.
“Vietjet has a very modern fleet of aircraft and operationally is now up there with the very best. That is great news for the travelling public in and tourists in Việt Nam and the region,” said Thomas.
AirlineRatings keeps tabs on 385 airlines across the globe using its seven-star rating system.
It has been used by millions of passengers in the world and has become the industry standard. AirlineRatings also previously awarded Vietjet the 'Best Ultra Low-Cost Airline for 2020'. — VNS
