Impressive growth acceleration
The additional election of senior personnel is part of Bamboo Airways’ management apparatus consolidation plan to gear up the restructuring process and optimise the interests of shareholders and stakeholders, thus aiming to achieve greater goals sustainably in the new development phase.
Along with the impressive recovery momentum of the Vietnamese aviation market in general, Bamboo Airways has reached many historic development milestones in the post-pandemic period.
Constantly ranking among top airlines with optimal operational capacity, Bamboo Airways' domestic flight network has been resumed and expanded in the peak period of this summer. Earning the trust of numerous passengers, load factors of many routes are continuously recorded at high rates, frequently exceeding 80 per cent.

Bamboo Airways' international flight network also witnesses an impressive growth rate. Shortly after Vietnam officially reopened its international flight network in mid-February, Bamboo Airways launched nine new international regular non-stop routes while increasing the frequency of pre-pandemic operated flights.
As a result, Bamboo Airways' revenue in April exceeded $42,000, then reached nearly $85,000 in revenue per month from May to July. Total revenue in the second quarter is estimated to increase by 50 per cent.
Bamboo Airways operates an average of 170 flights per day, covering the domestic flight network with nearly 40 routes to 21 airports in Vietnam and 12 regular international nonstop routes to Asia, Europe, and Australia.
As of July, Bamboo Airways continues to maintain its leading position in terms of punctuality since its establishment, with an absolute safety rate of 100 per cent. The customer satisfaction rate has always remained at an excellent level. Recently, Bamboo Airways was honoured as Most Improved Airline in Asia 2022, Best Cabin Crew in Asia 2022, and Asia's leading regional airline.
In the coming time, Bamboo Airways will continue to promote and launch new international routes to markets in Asia, Europe, Australia, and further to the Americas. In particular, Bamboo Airways will focus on developing long-haul nonstop international flights connecting major continental gateway airports, thus gearing up the process of making Vietnam an aviation gateway of Southeast Asia and enhancing Vietnam's competitiveness. Additionally, Bamboo Airways targets an increase its fleet to 35 aircraft by the end of 2022, 42 by 2023, and 100 by 2028.
Along with efforts to promote operational scale, Bamboo Airways persistently pursues the goal of providing international-oriented services, thereby leveraging quintessential values of Vietnamese culture and people further on the international map.
