Our cooperation has been fruitful in the last ten years and technology development and technology applications in fleet operation and management has been the backbone of our growth strategy. I believe that the development and constant upgrade of AMOS will enhance Vietjet’s capabilities in fleet operation and management, thus helping us serve our customers better while optimizing the airline’s operational cost.”
