Bamboo Airways continues to plan for the recovery of the global air travel industry with new applications for routes to North America.

In April this year the airline announced that it had secured slits for direct flights from Vietnam to London Heathrow to add to existing plans for flights to Frankfurt, Munich and Prague.
It also announced plans to start direct flights to San Francisco from September this year, although flights have not yet gone on sale with the ongoing pandemic and travel restrictions to Vietnam.
The airline has however started to recruit for staff for its representative office at San Francisco International Airport.
Flights between Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and San Francisco are planned to use the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with flights leaving HCM at 1pm, landing in the US at 9.30am. Flights will leave San Francisco at 12.30pm, landing back in HCM at 10am.
Initial details are now coming to light on planned additional routes to North America.
Applications for route licenses have been made to the US Department of Transportation for one stop flights from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi via Taipei (Taiwan), Osaka or Nagoya (both Japan) to Los Angeles, Dallas, Seattle and New York.
Applications have also been made for onward flights from US destinations to Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver in Canada.
It is believed that the routes may include a codeshare with a US carrier so not all routes may operate using Bamboo Airways own fleet.
