A Japanese-owned company in Vietnam has won a contract to produce components for the famous A320 aircraft, Airbus announced Wednesday.
Nikkiso Vietnam in Hanoi will begin manufacturing the composite wing spars and shields for a fuel-saving wingtip device called the Sharklet this August.
According to Airbus, more than 4,280 A320 aircraft are awaiting delivery to buyers around the world.
Airbus aircraft were first used in Vietnam in the 1990s.
The national carrier Vietnam Airlines now owns a fleet of 59 A320s, while the low-cost airline VietJetAir owns 10 and has recently ordered another 100.
