By launching a new office, Bamboo Airways has expanded its presence in Australia and international markets.
The launching ceremony of Bamboo Airways’ representative office took place at Sydney Airport on November 9.
With a favourable location, Bamboo Airways’ representative office at Sydney Airport will serve as a contact office, overseeing operation and attracting a wide range of potential customers in Australia.
It is also of great significance for Bamboo Airways’ international cooperation and service network expansion on the global scale.

“In the time ahead, we target to expand our international presence, leverage exceptional services, thereby spreading the traditional values of Vietnam to the world,” said Truong Phuong Thanh, deputy general director of Bamboo Airways.
“In that process, the representative office at Sydney Airport marks a new milestone in enhancing our competitiveness in the market.”
|In the coming time, the airline will focus on promoting international long-haul connectivity to major continental airports, making Vietnam an aviation gateway of Southeast Asia and Asia. |
Greg Botham, chief commercial officer of Sydney Airport said, “Through this year’s relationship with Bamboo Airways, we see many opportunities to build on the strong base and increase the friendship and understanding between Sydney and Vietnam. There are strong cultural ties between Sydney and Ho Chi Minh City. We expect this relationship to grow even further with greater air connectivity between Australia and Vietnam’s dynamic cities.”
Attempt to reach the world
Since its establishment, Australia is one of the potential markets that Bamboo Airways has aimed to serve. The airline has quickly expanded operations to this market.
Bamboo Airways has launched regular nonstop services connecting Vietnam and Australia since February 19, offering passengers more time-saving travel compared with transit flights.
In particular, the airline operates the weekly nonstop Ho Chi Minh City-Melbourne/Sydney services with two return flights for each route, adding to one return Hanoi-Melbourne flight per week. Bamboo Airways has powered these routes with its ultra-modern wide-body Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

This has vividly proved Bamboo Airways’ efforts to expand its network to 40 international routes in 2022. Besides Australia, Bamboo Airways has quickly increased frequencies and launched new routes to many destinations in Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe (Germany, UK, and more).
In the coming time, the airline will focus on promoting international long-haul connectivity to major continental airports, making Vietnam an aviation gateway of Southeast Asia and Asia, thus leveraging the country’s growing tourism industry.
In addition to network expansion, Bamboo Airways continues to focus on international standard quality in pursuit of the full-service carrier model, with three core pillars including on-time performance, high quality, and dedicated service.
As the first private airline in Vietnam aiming to offer international services on every flight, Bamboo Airways has promoted connections to 21/22 domestic airports, adding to the international network featuring major airports in Asia, Europe, and Australia. As a result, Bamboo Airways has established itself among the three leading domestic airlines in Vietnam.
Bamboo Airways has led Vietnamese aviation in terms of on-time performance from its founding. The airline was honoured as one of the World's Best Regional Airline and Asia’s Best Regional Airlines by Skytrax, among many other awards.
