Bamboo Airways to launch regular flights to Seoul

Vietnam’s newest carrier Bamboo Airways will launch regular flights linking major cities of Vietnam with Seoul capital city of the Republic of Korea (RoK) starting from October 17, according to a representative of the airline.

The carrier plans to operate one round-trip flight in the route every day, using Airbus A321neo. Tickets for the new flights have been on sale since last month.

The RoK will continue to be a key market for Vietnamese airlines. Earlier, it was among the first countries that Bamboo Airways had chosen to launch international charter flights from April this year.

Bamboo Airways is operating 26 domestic routes and international ones to Japan, the RoK, and China.

In 2019, the airline plans to expand its network to 37-40 routes, including those to the Republic of Korea, China’s Taiwan and Southeast Asian countries. Its fleet is expected to expand to 30 in next year’s first quarter./
