Bamboo Airways plans to join Oneworld or Star Alliance by 2021.
The rapidly-growing Vietnamese airline reportedly intends to join an airline alliance by 2021. Bamboo Airways is eyeing either Oneworld or Star Alliance.
SkyTeam wouldn’t make much sense as its competitor Vietnam Airlines is already in the alliance.
This July, Bamboo Airways is planning to launch nonstop flights from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Munich, Germany, which suggests they could be looking into a Star Alliance membership as Munich is a major hub for Lufthansa.

On the other hand, Bamboo Airways is planning to launch a partnership with Japan Airlines, which indicates a potential Oneworld membership.
However, Star Alliance currently has two members in the Southeast Asia region:
- Singapore Airlines
- Thai Airways
…While Oneworld only has Malaysia Airlines.
What are your thoughts? Could you see Bamboo Airways join Oneworld or Star Alliance?
- Star Alliance
Whatever Bamboo Airways ends up choosing, that alliance will receive a powerful partner in the Southeast Asia region… (if they survive by 2021 🤐)
