Apart from applying for an air transport license, the carrier launched a marketing and advertising program for its business on Phu Quoc Island last week.

Vinpearl Air, which is headquartered in Hanoi City, had earlier applied for a business license with six new-generation aircraft, ready to take off in July 2020. Each year, the carrier will increase its aircraft fleet by six planes, targeting 30 aircraft by 2024.

Recruitment has been completed quickly.

However, the approval process for the airline’s air transport operations is taking a long time as the newcomer had registered its business in Hanoi City, where the Hanoi Department of Planning and Investment is required to consider the application before submitting it to the Ministry of Planning and Investment.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment and the Ministry of Transport will assess the carrier’s initial steps and will submit the application to the prime minister for approval.

In related news, Bamboo Airways is completing procedures to expand its aircraft fleet to 30 airplanes by 2023.
