Kim recently sent me an article about how flying around Vietnam is about to get much better. This was of interest to me since I’d love to revisit the country.
During our short visit there, we didn’t get to see a lot of the country so I definitely plan to go back to Vietnam in the future.
Bamboo Airways is a new airline waiting to get its aviation license – the government’s permission to operate.
Once all of the legal stuff is sorted out, the airline hopes to start flying by the end of this year or in early 2019. CN Traveler mentions that Bamboo Airways will be, “using Hanoi as a hub, before adding routes to China, Japan, Korea, and eventually the U.S.”
The airline plans to fly to Quy Nhon which is a 20-hour drive from Hanoi, Hai Phong which is only a two hour drive from Hanoi and Quang Ninh- where Halong Bay is located.
FLC Group, the company starting the airline has ordered 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliners and also agreed to purchase 24 A321Neos from Airbus.
According to an article I read on Bamboo Airways’ site, they say that they will be a “hybrid airline, combining traditional and low cost airfares, to target a service that is affordable.”
