Each of the aforementioned routes would include one flight per day, Thanh added, confirming the carrier would use new-generation aircraft, such as the B787-9 Dreamliner and A321Neo.

Earlier this year, Bamboo Airways announced plans to launch direct flights to Prague and Munich.

The airline took off in January last year, operating 40 domestic and international routes before the pandemic forced it to severely curtail business.
