Vietjet and Safran Seats have signed an agreement to equip up to 24,000 Economy Class seat Z200 for 120 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

The contract is the first ever signed between the two companies. The first aircraft is planned for delivery to Thail Vietjet, VietJet's Thai subsidiary, starting in mid-2024.

The Z200 is the latest addition to Safran Seats range for short and medium-haul economy class seats. This new generation is one kilogram lighter than the previous one and will highly contribute to the airline's long-term sustainability objective of reducing fuel costs and carbon emissions.

Vietjet has chosen options dedicated to passengers’ connectivity needs aboard the aircraft. This seat include a PED (Portable Electronic Device) holder and USB ports and combines comfort, lightness and durability.

"The selection of the latest generation seat Z200 affirms Vietjet's commitment to modernizing our fleet by investing in the core details of the aircraft’s cabin interior to ensure passengers’ utmost comfort and convenience. The advanced technology and rich experience of the industry leaders like Safran will also support Vietjet to continue reaching higher technical reliability and operation optimization, thus bringing the most enjoyable and affordable flying experiences to all of our passengers," commented Dinh Viet Phuong, Vietjet CEO in a June 19 press release.
