Bamboo Airways was working to become the first Vietnamese carrier to open a direct route connecting Hanoi and Prague in an attempt to bring the two countries closer together, a meeting heard in Prague on Wednesday.

The roadshow aimed to introduce Vietnam’s tourism potential and provide information about a direct air route linking the two countries.

In his speech, Vietnamese Ambassador to the Czech Republic Ho Minh Tuan said the launch of this routethe first connecting the Czech Republic with Aseanwould open up many new cooperation opportunities in the fields of tourism and trade.

Europe was regarded a key market for Bamboo Airways in expanding its flight network and tourism and investment products this year, said the airline’s deputy general director, Truong Phuong Thanh.

The Czech Republic is one of the first destinations it had chosen as a gateway to Europe, he said.

Earlier last year, Bamboo Airways and Prague International Airport signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation, that has paved the way for the airline to launch a direct route in the second quarter of this year.

According to trade experts, there remained untapped opportunities for Vietnam and the Czech Republic to accelerate bilateral ties thanks to the Southeast Asian nation’s positive economic growth in recent years that made it an attractive market for trade and investment.
