Bamboo Airways has announced to suspend 10 international routes to Asian and European destinations from Oct. 29 to "ensure resources and prioritize operational efficiency."

The carrier will start suspending flights between Hanoi and South Korea's Incheon from Sunday, it announced on its official Facebook page.

Flights from HCMC to Singapore, Australia’s Sydney and Melbourne will be halted from Nov. 4 while air services from HCMC and Hanoi to Germany's Frankfurt will be halted the same day.

Other connections from Hanoi to Thailand’s Bangkok, Japan’s Narita and Taiwan’s Taipei will be suspended from Nov. 8.

It also halted service on the HCMC-Bangkok route from Nov. 21.

Earlier, the Hanoi-London route was suspended from Oct. 18.

Full refunds or flight changes are being offered for tickets already sold.

As for the domestic flight network, Bamboo Airways continues to maintain stable operations of major routes such as Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi-Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City-Da Nang and those connecting to tourism hubs such as Hai Phong, Vinh, Dong Hoi, Hue, Nha Trang, Da Lat, Quy Nhon, Phu Quoc and Con Dao.

Bamboo Airways appointed former leader of Pacific Airlines and Air Mekong Luong Hoai Nam as its new CEO on Monday amid major restructuring.

The carrier has been going through major leadership changes ever since its chairman Trinh Van Quyet was arrested in March last year for stock market manipulation and fraud.
