Important Flight Network

Within the event framework, Bamboo Airways announced the first of its special authorization flights between Vietnam and the US on September 23 from Hanoi to San Francisco and return. This shows Bamboo Airways’ fulfilled standards and ability in ensuring operational safety and services for the nonstop route connecting the two countries.

This is considered an important milestone for a private airline like Bamboo Airways in the journey of conducting regular nonstop commercial flights between Vietnam and the US.
