 In the short term, Bamboo Airways will use 3 Embraer E195 jets with a capacity of 124 passengers to exploit these journeys. However, according to Bamboo Airways Deputy General Director, Nguyen Ngoc Trong, the airline will only carry about 100 passengers per flight to ensure safety.

Mr. Nguyen Manh Quan, Deputy General Director of Bamboo Airways, said he would build a flexible price based on supply and demand of the market to serve customers. The detailed price of the ticket for each leg has not been announced, but Mr. Quan revealed the Hanoi - Con Dao itinerary is expected to be sold at the lowest price from 1.6 million VND one way (excluding taxes and fees).
"Bamboo Airways still maintains its target of capturing 30% of domestic market share. Opening Con Dao route is just one step in the development of the airline's domestic flight network. This is an opportunity for businesses to turn difficulties into opportunities after the second wave of epidemics ", Mr. Quan said.

         Three deputy general directors of Bamboo Airways shared about the flight plan of Con Dao on September 9.

Bamboo Airways leaders all commented that, apart from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, flights from other localities to Con Dao still have great potentials and huge space. In 2019, Con Dao welcomed 400,000 visitors, an increase of 37% compared to 2018. After a period of social isolation earlier this year, flights from Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho to/from Con Dao was also in the fastest recovery group.
Currently, Con Dao airport is still limited in terms of infrastructure, can only receive ATR 72 or equivalent aircraft, can not operate at night ... In order to contribute to solving the infrastructure problem, FLC - Bamboo Airways' parent group asked the authorities to sponsor the installation of night lights for this airport 2 months ago. Mr. Trong said that this proposal is still being studied by the authorities.
