Bamboo Airways will launch two direct routes connecting Munich – Germany’s third-largest city – with Vietnam’s Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in the middle of this year. The announcement follows a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) inked between the airline and Munich Airport this week.
The two direct routes will operate from July with one round-trip flight per week from Hanoi and two from HCM City. The airline said it will use Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners – the most modern, fuel-efficient wide-body aircraft as of now, with numerous outstanding utilities and services, for these routes.
Munich Airport is the main gateway to the city of Munich and is one of the most important economic, transportation and cultural centres in the country. It is both the second largest airport in Germany and the only five-star airport in Europe.
Established in 2017, Bamboo Airways is the first private airline in Vietnam to aim at providing five-star services. It is operating more than 40 domestic and international routes, transporting more than three million passengers per year.
