Bamboo Airways will launch the first ever direct flight from Hanoi to Con Dao Island, a tourism hotspot off the southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, on September 29.

There will be two round trips daily.

The airline will also begin daily flights to Con Dao from the northern port city of Hai Phong and central Vinh Town from September 29. It will use twin-engine Embraer jets with 120 seats on all three routes.

Nguyen Ngoc Trong, deputy director of Bamboo Airways, said the airline would carry a maximum of 100 passengers on a flight to ensure safety amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Vietnam Air Services Company, commonly known as VASCO, a subsidiary of Vietnam Airlines, is the only airline currently operating regular flights to the island, flying from Ho Chi Minh City and the southern city of Can Tho.

Con Dao has a 3C classification, meaning it can only receive ATR 72 and other similar aircraft. It closes at night since it lacks a runway lighting system.

Property developer FLC, parent company of Bamboo Airways, has sought to invest in a lighting system so that the airport could operate at night.

Con Dao received 400,000 visitors last year.
