Vietnam Bamboo Airlines to order 12 Boeing 777X


According to aerotime report, Bamboo Airlines of Vietnam may order 12 Boeing 777X aircraft in the summer of 2020, worth about $ 5 billion. At present, no specific models and delivery dates have been communicated.

Vietnam Bamboo Airlines was founded by the Vietnamese construction company FLC Group and was established more than a year ago. It currently operates 22 Airbus A320 series and three Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. By the end of this year, the fast-growing airline should have 50 aircraft. Vietnam is one of the fastest-growing markets in the world's civil aviation, but there are many voices in the outside world that there is already a trend of oversupply in the Vietnamese civil aviation market.

In June 2019, there were rumors that Vietnam Airlines may lease an A380 to open a new route to the United States. This is due to the decision of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to assign a Tier 1 rating to Vietnam, allowing the country ’s airlines to fly to the United States and share codes with local airlines. However, it is unclear whether the project is still under discussion.
