The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam said it would closely monitor Bamboo Airways for the next three to six months to ensure safety following the arrest of its chairman.

Its aircraft maintenance and operations and training would be closely supervised, deputy head of the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), Ho Minh Tan, said at an emergency meeting with the airline’s management Wednesday.

The meeting came a day after real estate giant FLC and Bamboo Airways chairman Trinh Van Quyet for alleged manipulation of his company’s share prices by using 20 different trading accounts to create fake demand.

He had earned VND530 billion (US$23.19 million) in this manner between Dec. 1 and Jan. 10, investigators said.

Deputy general director Nguyen Ngoc Trong said banks and financial institutions are committed to fulfilling all contracts they have signed with the carrier, which would in turn fulfill all its responsibilities and obligations.

Bamboo Airways began flying in 2019.

On Thursday, Dang Tat Thang was named the new chairman to replace Quyet until shareholders and the board of directors make a final decision. He also remains general director.
