FLC's projects currently spread across all the three regions of Vietnam.

RoK businesses can cooperate with FLC in these projects, Quyet said.

Particularly in the aviation sector, earlier this year, Bamboo Airways operated the first international flight (in the form of charter flight) to Quy Nhon from Cheongju Airport, followed by some regular flights to the RoK from Da Nang and Nha Trang.

Bamboo Airways has worked closely with partners such as Hana Tour, the largest travel agency in the RoK at present, to tap into the rapidly growing tourist communities in the two countries.

As part of the Government's policy on reopening air routes to countries showing good control of COVID-19, the airline is expected to operate a regular route linking Hanoi and Incheon (the RoK) from October 2020.

It is preparing to launch more regular routes from Quy Nhon, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, as well as charter flights from Thanh Hoa, Binh Dinh nd Quang Binh to the RoK, bring Korean tourists to localities where FLC projects are based and vice versa, when the situation becomes stable.
