Bamboo Airways operated its inaugural flight to London Heathrow
On the morning of October 30, Bamboo Airways flight QH9051 landed at London Heathrow Airport (LHR). The Vietnamese airline's non-repatriated commercial flight took almost 14 hours to take off from Nano Bai International Airport (HAN) in Hanoi. This is a route that Bamboo Airways has been working on for a long time.
Bamboo Airways marked a historic moment by operating its inaugural flight to London Heathrow Airport. The only previous time the Vietnamese carrier visited the British capital was at the beginning of the pandemic, when it operated repatriation flights.
Hanoi - London Heathrow flight schedule with Bamboo Airways
The Hanoi - London Heathrow route will be honored with five weekly flights, and in the near future Bamboo Airways will fly to London and from Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport (SGN) in Ho Chi Minh City.
The flight was honored with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Bamboo Airways owns three Dreamliner aircraft. They were received in December 2019 and January 2020. The plan was to put them to work on long flights to Europe as early as the spring of 2020, but the pandemic came and Bamboo Airways' plans to expand were stopped.
Despite being an airline focused on holiday flights, 787 Dreamliner Bamboo aircraft offer passengers a lot of comfort. These modern twinjet aircraft have a capacity of 294 passengers. 247 places are in Economy Class, 21 places in Premium Economy Class and 24 places in Business Class.
