About Bamboo Airways

Founded in 2017, Bamboo Airways is a Vietnamese airline that was created by a construction company, FLC Group. Bamboo Airways' first service took place on 29th December 2018. The airline flies from its hub airport at Quy Nhon's Phu Cat Airport (UIH) to several domestic destinations within Vietnam. Bamboo Airlines' route network is currently focused on destinations that the FLC group has invested in and has long-term plans to operate over 30 routes connecting all major cities and popular tourist destinations in Vietnam. Bamboo Airlines received its air operator certificate on 9 July 2018 and additionally received its certification from Vietnam's Civil Aviation Authority.
