New flights to Vietnam from Heathrow started last week (23 March) operated by Bamboo Airways.
The Vietnamese airline is running a twice-weekly service using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft in a two-class configuration. One-way fares start at £321 in Economy and £1,750 in Business Class.
Chief Executive Dang Tat Thang said: “We are delighted that we can now fly passengers from London Heathrow direct to Hanoi at an affordable rate. London is one of the world’s financial and cultural hubs, so we expect our new service will further promote the connectivity between Vietnam and the UK, thus contributing to leveraging Vietnam aviation in the global market.
“Our goal is to expand across Europe, the US, Australia and Asia and by 2022 we aim to have 40 international routes in place. The world is opening up and Bamboo Airways is ready to take passengers on their next adventure”.
Heathrow Chief Commercial Officer Ross Baker added: “As demand begins to recover, we’re delighted to welcome Bamboo Airways to the Heathrow family. The frequent direct flights from the UK’s hub airport to Vietnam will give British businesses access to a fast-growing market and give passengers the opportunity to visit the remarkable destinations Vietnam has to offer.”
