Bamboo Airways to halt services to Con Dao Island in April

HCMC – Bamboo Airways has announced that it will discontinue its services from Hanoi and HCMC to Con Dao Island, starting from April this year, according to the local media.

The decision follows the airline’s decision to terminate the lease of three Embraer E190 aircraft by the end of March. The move is in line with the restructuring plan presented to the Government by the privately-held carrier at the end of last year.

Starting in April, Bamboo Airways’ passenger aircraft fleet will consist of eight Airbus A320/321 aircraft, which might expand to 12-15 by the end of the year.

Upon returning the Embraer E190 aircraft, the airline will suspend all or part of its flight services on routes from Hanoi and HCMC to Con Dao, Hue, and from Hanoi to Dong Hoi.

The carrier will center on services between Hanoi and HCMC, and those connecting Hanoi and HCMC with Danang and other domestic destinations.

This is not the first time Bamboo Airways has suspended domestic services. Since the end of last year, the airline has reduced frequencies or ceased services on some poor-performing routes, such as those from Hanoi and HCMC to Phu Quoc, or from Hanoi to Ca Mau.
