Bamboo Airways (QH, Hanoi) is planning to join one of the global airline alliances in 2023 and is actively pursuing more interline partnerships with larger carriers, Chief Commercial Officer Thach Pierre Hoang said during the Routes Asia 2022 conference in Da Nang.

Thach said that the privately-owned airline would decide on which of the three alliances to join once it gets a clearer picture of the requirements and benefits of all of them. Majority-state-owned rival Vietnam Airlines is a member of Skyteam, which also counts Garuda Indonesia among its member airlines. Star Alliance's South-East Asian member carriers include Thai Airways International and Singapore Airlines, while Malaysia Airlines is a member of Oneworld.

Bamboo Airways is in talks about interline partnerships with JAL - Japan Airlines (Oneworld), Air Canada (Star Alliance), and Virgin Australia (unaffiliated), Thach added.

The ch-aviation PRO airlines module shows that the dynamically growing Vietnamese carrier pursues an independent strategy as of now and has no codeshare agreements in place. Its fleet comprises one A319-100, six A320-200s, six A320-200Ns, three A321-200s, four A321-200Ns, two A321-200NXs, three B787-9s, and five E190s.
