HCMC – Local carrier Bamboo Airways today, September 29, opened three new direct routes connecting Hanoi, Haiphong and Vinh cities with Con Dao, a tourist island off the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

Flight QH1031 operated by the carrier landed at Con Dao airport at 9:10 a.m. this morning, carrying passengers from Hanoi to the island on an Embraer 195 aircraft called Con Dao National Park. This is the first Bamboo Airways commercial flight to connect with Con Dao and also marked the opening of the three new routes.

With this launch, Bamboo Airways has become the first local airline to open multiple direct routes to Con Dao at the same time as well as the first to operate the new-generation Embraer 195 jet in Vietnam.

The carrier said that it operates two round-trip flights per day on the Hanoi-Con Dao route, one daily round-trip flight on the Haiphong-Con Dao route and three weekly flights on the Vinh-Con Dao route. The flight frequency can be adjusted upward depending on the actual demand for travel among passengers.

Earlier, Bamboo Airways announced that after its first Embraer 195 jet was named Con Dao National Park, its second one, which arrived in Vietnam on September 27, was called Con Son Islands.

With up to 10 Embraer E195 aircraft expected to be added to the carrier’s fleet, Bamboo Airways is planning to operate other potential routes that are yet to be fully tapped, such as Phu Quoc-Rach Gia, HCMC-Ca Mau and Danang-Dien Bien/Con Dao.
