Sydney Airport welcomes Bamboo Airways with new service to Ho Chi Minh

Sydney Airport and Bamboo Airways have announced a new, twice-weekly Sydney to Ho Chi Minh service marking the first new international airline to begin services to Sydney Airport following the re-opening of international borders.

The new twice-weekly Sydney Ho Chi Minh City service will kick off from 30 March, growing to four weekly by the end of 2022, using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

“Hot on the heels of Australia’s borders re-opening it’s terrific to be announcing a new airline partner in Bamboo Airways,” said Geoff Culbert, CEO of Sydney Airport.

“Vietnam is an incredibly popular destination for Australian leisure travellers and with a big Vietnamese diaspora in Sydney it makes sense to build greater connectivity between our two cities.”

Bamboo’s arrival into Sydney was supported by the NSW Government’s Aviation Attraction Fund and is the first new international service to be confirmed since the fund was announced in October 2021.

Dang Tat Thang, CEO Bamboo Airways, said they were thrilled to be the first new international airline at Sydney Airport soon after Australia lifted international travel restrictions.

“With the valuable support of Australia’s busiest airport and the NSW Government, we are committed to making the new regular nonstop Sydney – Ho Chi Minh City service a great success for both sides and look forward to further development in our partnership,” he said.
