Bamboo Airways charts new course, pushing ahead with restructuring

Bamboo Airways’ initial progress lays the foundation for long-term restructuring to rebuild the airline more efficiently and streamlined. This will enhance the company’s competitiveness, capacity, and autonomy, enabling it to become more self-sufficient, attract high-quality resources and strategic investors, and ultimately achieve its objectives. 

Over the past few months, Bamboo Airways has been steadfast in its commitment to ensuring the utmost safety, security, and excellence in service quality while drastically implementing comprehensive measures to enhance the efficiency of its production and business activities.

Regarding the fleet, Bamboo Airways has been actively discussing and negotiating with partners to redesign the appropriate structure and size, prioritizing economy, uniformly standardizing aircraft configuration, reducing fuel consumption, and protecting the environment.

Simultaneously, Bamboo Airways is taking steps to expand the potential lessor network, working closely with Boeing and Airbus to implement previously agreed upon aircraft purchase agreements. These efforts aim to prepare for the fleet increase from 2024 onwards proactively.

For the route network, Bamboo Airways has improved commercial efficiency by reducing the frequency of a number of inefficient routes with low passenger demand while increasing operation on routes recording high demand. This has enabled the airline to optimally meet market capacity and enhance the overall performance of its network.

Regarding the booking system, Bamboo Airways has recently upgraded the core system to modernize and optimize its functionality, bringing it to international standards. As a result, passengers can now enjoy a smoother, faster, and more convenient experience when using the service, both before, during, and after their flight.

This set of solutions has enabled Bamboo Airways to chart a new, suitable course for its operations in late 2023 and early 2024. The carrier's fleet structure is expected to incorporate narrow-body aircraft and jets, which will be deployed on key domestic routes, strongly emphasizing trunk routes such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nang. The airline will also offer services on domestic tourist routes with high demand and international routes to Southeast Asia.

Bamboo Airways has taken significant steps to enhance its customer care policy and extended its support to its network of domestic and foreign partners and agents, all aiming to safeguard the best interests of every party involved. In the event of flight adjustment, affected passengers will be promptly notified and assisted in adherence to the airline's policies and applicable laws.

Bamboo Airways sees this as a crucial opportunity to grow in the future, aligning with the major development milestones of Vietnam's aviation. With the expected opening of the T3 Passenger Terminal at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in 2025 and the Long Thanh International Airport in 2026, Bamboo Airways is poised to capitalize on these developments for progress and success.
