VietJet Air -- a valued existing customer of Avation - operates a modern fleet of Airbus A320s and A321s with an average age of 3.3 years.

It has a substantial route network of 135 routes including domestic and international destinations in Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India and Myanmar.

Strategic review awaited

Last week, Avation shares climbed after the group revealed it had begun a strategic review which could result in the company selling itself.

The aircraft leasing firm said the strategic review will consider multiple options to “maximise value for shareholders” including merger and acquisition activity, sales within the firm’s aircraft portfolio, as well as the sale of the entire company.

Formally announcing that it was now in an offer period, Avation also confirmed that it was in preliminary discussions with an interested party over a potential sale, although there was no certainty that an offer will be made.
