Vietnamese startup airline Bamboo Airways is expanding further with the addition of new flights to South Korea.
The airline will launch daily services between Seoul-Incheon to both Da Nang and Na Trang during October and November. Bamboo Airways' Da Nang-Seoul flights will start on October 17, while the Nha Trang-Seoul flights will start on November 15.
Bamboo Airways is looking to tap into the travel market between South Korea and Vietnam, specifically to Da Nang in central Vietnam. According to South Korean e-commerce website Ticket Monster, Da Nang was a top destination for Koreans during the summer of 2018. Da Nang's Department of Tourism reported around 878,000 visitors from Korea during the first half of 2019, an increase by 135,000 visitors compared to the same time period in 2018.
South of Da Nang is Nha Trang, a coastal city that has gained more attention as a tourist destination in Vietnam.
Since its launch in January 2019, Bamboo Airways operates flights to 26 destinations in the region using Airbus A320/A321 aircraft.
