- Bamboo Airways, a recently launched airline in Vietnam which commenced scheduled operations in January, added three new domestic spokes to its Hanoi (HAN) network on 10 March, with it beginning daily services to Can Tho (VCA), De Lat (DLI) and Pleiku (PXU). All three routes are expected to be flown using the carrier’s fleet of A320s, of which it is presently operating five according to various sources. All three routes are expected to face direct competition from at least two carriers. The 1,241-kilometre route to Can Tho will go head-to-head with Vietnam Airlines (three times daily) and VietJet Air (18 times weekly), while the 835-kilometre hop to Pleiku is already flown by the same two airlines, with both offering a daily rotation. The 1,086-kilometre airport pair with De Lat will compete with three operators, with VietJet Air (18 times weekly), Vietnam Airlines and Jetstar Pacific Airlines (latter two both daily) offering a robust schedule between the two destinations. The carrier currently has 11 routes on sale from Hanoi, all of them domestic services.
