VOV.VN - Vietnamese airline Bamboo Airways have initiated plans to open a direct air route between the nation and Germany, with flights set to get underway in July.
The airline plans to put flights into operation in July, with the Hanoi-Munich route set to fly one return flight per week whilst the Ho Chi Minh City-Munich route will see two return flights operating each week.
Information regarding the latest air route was unveiled in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that was signed between Bamboo Airways and Munich Airport on March 2, which aims to promote direct flights to and from Germany.
The MoU states that Munich Airport is fully committed to providing the highest standard in aviation safety and security conditions for the latest direct flights, while information detailing air transport and tourism projects between the two countries will also be regularly provided as a means of supporting the development of direct flights.
The newest direct routes will be operational using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft - the world’s most modern and fuel-efficient wide-body aircraft that boasts a range of outstanding utilities and services.
The MoU signing ceremony allows the strong flight network and five-star quality service provided by Bamboo Airways to make use of Munich Airport’s strong facilities and long-term operational experience, thereby meeting the people's demand in both nations, stated Bui Quang Dung, Deputy General Director of Bamboo Airways.
Aside from increasing the flow of German visitors and promoting mutual co-operation, these direct air routes will serve as the airline’s new products which will facilitate a greater connection between Europe and countries throughout both Asia and Southeast Asia, with Vietnam being the transit point, Dung noted.
Dung added that these routes will lay a foundation for the launch of the airline’s future air services to Germany and other countries throughout Europe later in the year.
