Bamboo Airways has got a slot allocated at London’s Heathrow Airport to fly six times a week from Hanoi and HCMC starting in May.
The flights would be operated using the airline’s long-haul Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
The carrier had stated its intention to fly to the British capital and Frankfurt in Germany in the first quarter of 2021, but was delayed due to the closure of Vietnamese borders to keep out Covid-19.
It has announced plans to make an initial public offering this year and raise VND6.3 trillion ($2.73 million).
