HANOI, VIETNAM - Vietnam Airlines will buy four Boeing 787 Dreamliners as part of a plan to expand its fleet to meet increasing travel demands, an airline spokesman said Friday.
This comes as a good sign as it seems that the United States and Vietnam are finally normalizing ties between each other. This deal seems to be led by Prime Minister Phan Van Khai who will be visiting the United States from June 19 to June 25. Vietnam is expanding it's fleet as it seems like it is quickly becoming a tourist attraction (as a traveler can tell from this description).
Most visitors to Vietnam are overwhelmed by the sublime beauty of the country's natural setting: the Red River Delta in the north, the Mekong Delta in the south and almost the entire coastal strip are a patchwork of brilliant green rice paddies tended by women in conical hats.
There are some divine beaches along the coast, while inland there are soaring mountains, some of which are cloaked by dense, misty forests. Vietnam also offers an opportunity to see a country of traditional charm and rare beauty rapidly opening up to the outside world.
The company providing the commercial airliners is Boeing which is expected to deliver the jets to Vietnam by 2010. The deal is valued at about $500 million and should be finalized when Prime Minister Khai visits America later on this month.
