The seventh Payload Asia Awards acknowledges the best companies in the air cargo market, including global carriers, airports, logistic suppliers of the year, putting the spotlight on services that benefit the rising e-commerce market.

“Vietjet has won double awards this year thanks to its agility in air cargo strategy since March 2020, the very early stage of the global pandemic. With outstanding cargo activities throughout the year which helped to fill the logistics gap in the regional and global supply chain, the carrier has demonstrated its excellence to the industry professionals,” said Payload Asia editor Giullian Navarra.

“We are very delighted to receive such an international recognition for Vietjet’s air cargo activities in a very challenging year. I believe that the freight operation of Vietjet and global airlines will get much busier in the coming time,” Vietjet Cargo CEO Do Xuan Quang said.

Vietjet last year configured some of its passenger aircraft for freight transportation purposes while applying new operational methods to strengthen its cargo service capacity.

Vietjet is set to be among the few airlines in the world reporting positive consolidated financial statement for 2020.

The airline has since delivered more than 60,000 tonnes of cargo transnationally, seeing its freight revenue leaping by 75 per cent over the previous year. Through interline agreements, Vietjet’s cargo also landed in the US and Europe for the first time in 2020. The airline is set to be among the few airlines in the world reporting a positive consolidated financial statement for 2020.

Vietjet is a fully-fledged member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) with the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certificate. As Vietnam’s largest private carrier, the airline was awarded the highest ranking for safety with seven stars in 2018 and 2019 by the world’s only safety and product rating website and listed as one of the world's 50 best airlines for healthy financing and operations by Airfinance Journal in 2018 and 2019. The airline has also been named as Best Low-Cost Carrier by renowned organisations such as Skytrax, CAPA, Airline Ratings, and many others.
