Airbus manufactures spare parts in Vietnam

Under a sub-contract with the Korean Air Aerospace Division, Japan-invested Nikkiso Vietnam will manufacture components of fuel-saving Sharklet wingtips for Airbus at Nikkiso’s factory in the northern Hung Yen Province’s Thang Long Industrial Park Two.

At the press conference, Airbus introduced the company’s new industrial work package for Vietnam which features the production from raw materials of lightweight composite parts including interior spares and outer panels for Sharklets. Production is expected to commence before the end of the year.
Airbus’s Sharklet is a new 2.4 meter high wingtip device for A230 Family aircraft that reduces fuel usage by up to four percent and increases mission range by up to 100 nautical miles by reducing drag and improving airflow at the end of aircraft wings. All new aircraft in the A320neo Family will be fitted with the Sharklet devices. Last October, Airbus also launched the  Sharklet retrofit program which retrofits the older A320 aircraft with the wingtip devices.
Several stages of production are expected to start in August.
Sharklet will help save fuel and is one of the best choices for modern aircraft like the A320. With more than 4,280 A320 airplanes being sold to airlines around the world, the new production package will ensure long-term contracts for Nikkiso Vietnam.
Airbus has entered Vietnam since 1990 and it has supplied 59 A320s and 10 A330-200s to Vietnam Airlines – the national flag carrier.
 
Airbus has also gained huge success in Vietnam with its customer VietJetAir which currently owns 10 A320s. Early this year, the budget airline signed a contract to purchase an additional 100 A320s from the leading aircraft manufacturer in Europe.
