Reuters exclusively reported that Vietnamese carrier Bamboo Airways will sign a deal with Boeing to purchase 10 planes worth nearly $3 billion on the sidelines of this week’s Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi. Vietnam’s domestic budget carrier, VietJet Aviation, is also expected to sign a major jet deal with the U.S. aircraft manufacturer, a move widely seen as an effort to emphasize strengthening economic and military ties between the United States and Vietnam. VietJet, while not government-owned, increasingly uses state visits to showcase major plane orders balanced between Boeing and Airbus. It signed a deal to buy 100 Boeing 737 MAX jets when former U.S. President Barack Obama visited Hanoi in 2016.
