Airlines are being forced to optimize aircraft maintenance plans as well as prepare spare parts, equipment and tools for aircraft repair so that aircrafts can operate most efficiently, but also safely.

At the beginning of May, Vietnam had a total of 199 planes, 32 fewer than in 2023. Of them, 165-170 were air-ready, 40-45 fewer than the average in 2023.
