Bamboo Airways suspends international services

Troubled Vietnamese carrier, Bamboo Airways, announced on October 28 its decision to suspend services on 10 international routes as it undergoes restructuring.

The move affects connections between Hanoi and Incheon, Tokyo Narita, Taipei, Bangkok and Frankfurt; and Ho Chi Minh City and Frankfurt, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne. Suspensions will come into effect starting from October 29.

This follows Bamboo Airways’ earlier service suspension of Hanoi-London Gatwick flights on October 18.

In a Facebook post, the airline said domestic services will remain for major hubs, such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Danang.

The same post informed affected passengers that customer service manpower has been “strengthened” to “support requests and provide assistance as soon as possible”, and forms of assistance include flight rescheduling or full fare refunds.

Bamboo Airways has seen major leadership changes since chairman Trinh Van Quyet was arrested in March 2022 for stock market manipulation and fraud. Former leader of Pacific Airlines and Air Mekong Luong Hoai Nam was appointed new CEO last week.
