Prof. Dr. Tran Dinh Thien, former head of Vietnam Institute of Economics, they are the “perfect duo” in the board of management.

Keeping a low profile to the public media, Madam Ha is a simple and gentle woman who has a strong passion for her career. She is the one who chose the national flag color and the five-pointed golden star as the symbol of Vietjet aircraft, following the tradition of her splendid military family.
Having extensive experience in the aviation industry in Vietnam, Madam Ha as well as all member of Vietjet’s board of management are determined to make Vietjet the pioneering airline that can bring more flying opportunities for everyone and contribute to the development of Vietnam's aviation industry. Madam Ha is also the Chairwoman of the Security Committee, the Human Resources Committee, and the Head of the Covid-19 Emergency Committee of Vietjet. The Chairwoman of Vietjet once said that “We believe in a better future in the sky, on the airplanes’ wings and we always strive to bring that future closer”.
The other woman who always stay alongside with Madam Ha on Vietjet’s journey to conquer new skies is “Madame Thao”. That is a dear nickname given by colleagues and subordinates to Madam Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, the President & CEO and Co-founder of Vietjet.
