Bamboo Airway’s direct air route linking Viet Nam and the UK was officially launched on Tuesday with a flight departing from Ha Noi’s Noi Bai International Airport to London.

The route will see two flights per week at present.

Bamboo Airlines uses 787-9 Dreamliner on this route, which helps shorten the travel time between the two countries to more than 12 hours, saving nearly seven hours compared to transit flights.

The route is hoped to foster connection between the countries, General Director of the carrier Dang Tat Thang said.

Earlier, Bamboo Airways operated its direct route linking Viet Nam and Germany.

As Viet Nam has resumed international tourism, the carrier plans to expand its international network to 40 routes this year.

In celebration of the new air route, Bamboo Airways offers ticket prices from only VND2.31 million (about US$100) per leg, excluding taxes and fees. — VNS
