Bamboo Airways will cooperate with its sister company FLC Biscom to organize the Bamboo Airways Golf Tournament 2019 from August 15 to 18, to mark the first anniversary of the carrier’s establishment and its 10,000th flight.

The tournament will be held at FLC Golf Links Sam Son in Sam Son city, northern Thanh Hoa province, which is the first international standard course from Nicklaus Design. The par 72 course is 7,242 yards long and features Platinum Paspalum grass.

With a beachfront location, unpredictable winds, and a links format, the tournament presents a challenging but interesting round for golfers. FLC Golf Links Sam Son has also hosted tournaments such as the FLC Golf Championship 2018, the Artex Golf Tournament plus 2018, and the FLC Viet Nam Masters.

The tournament is expected to attract 1,500 golfers, with prizes including 16 luxury motor cars, vouchers at green fees at FLC Biscom golf courses, air tickets on Bamboo Airways, and vouchers for resorts belonging to the FLC Group, Bamboo Airways’ parent group.

Mr. Trinh Van Quyet, Chairman of the FLC Group and General Director of Bamboo Airways, told VET that the Bamboo Airways Golf Tournament 2019 is being organized to express its gratitude towards its partners, friends, customers, and golfers on the occasion of Bamboo Airways’ first anniversary. “The tournament also features activities to raise funds for the poor and disadvantaged,” he added.

Bamboo Airways is the first airline in Vietnam to operate in a hybrid model, providing high quality services at competitive prices. It has conducted nearly 10,000 safe flights, with an average occupancy rate of 90 per cent and an on-time performance (OTP) of 93.8 per cent. The airline plans to operate 37 routes this year, connecting all major cities and popular tourist destinations in Vietnam and internationally.

Bamboo Airways has also organized many golf tournaments, such as the Bamboo Airways Spring 2019 in February and the Bamboo Airways Summer 2019 in April, to promote golf and golf tourism in Vietnam. Bamboo Airways and the FLC Group will also support the development of Vietnamese golfers, from amateur to professional.
