Boeing B787-9 is expected to give VNA, the national flag carrier, a new look as part of its brand recognition programme – which will be officially carried out when the firm receives the new aircraft in the middle of this year.

Vietnam Airlines will be the first Asian carrier to fly the all-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and Airbus A350 XWB to Europe. The aircraft will serve the London-Viet Nam route.

The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner has been equipped with a business class cabin with flat seats that recline 180 degrees, dynamic LED lighting, larger windows, spacious stowage, as well as cleaner, healthier air, and lower cabins, all of which will subdue tiredness during long trips.

In addition, passengers will be offered a pilot Wi-Fi service on Boeing 787-9.

Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is the all-new latest version of Boeing 787, which is more fuel-efficient and has a wider body.
