Bamboo Airways E190

From April onwards, Bamboo Airways will have an all-Airbus fleet with Embraer jets leaving

Vietnamese carrier currently has three E190s in service whose leasing contract will end in March

Five months after decommissioning its three Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, Bamboo Airways is about to remove the Embraer E190 regional jets from its fleet from service.

The Vietnamese carrier announced on February 23 that the three E190s configured with 124 seats will cease flying at the end of March, making its fleet all-Airbus.

The leased aircraft will have their contract terminated early, meaning that Bamboo will no longer operate flights to destinations such as Con Dao, whose runway does not yet accommodate A320 family aircraft.

According to the airline, routes to Vietnamese tourist islands will resume as soon as the government completes the airport expansion project.

After facing a serious financial crisis, Bamboo has undertaken a recovery program that involves simplifying its aircraft fleet.

Currently the airline has only three A320s, one of them the A320neo model, and four A321s, in addition to the three Embraer jets.

Bamboo Airways allegedly claimed that the E190s have similar fuel consumption to the A320/321 even though they carry fewer passengers.

Also according to local media, there would be difficulties in carrying out training and maintenance of E-Jets in the region.

Embraer, however, has just signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Fokker Services so that the maintenance center in Seletar, Singapore, can offer maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for its jets.

The E-Jets debuted on Bamboo Airways in December 2020 with a higher capacity E195 model. In total, the carrier operated five E190s and five E195s over just over three years.
