Bamboo Airways licensed to operate direct services to U.S.

VGP - Bamboo Airways has been licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation to carry passengers and cargoes between Viet Nam and the U.S.

November 11, 2020 3:03 PM GMT+7

The airline is allowed to use wide-body Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to fly directly from Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City to international airports in the U.S., such as those in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

In the coming time, the airline will seek licenses from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and other relevant agencies of the U.S., said Bamboo Airways Deputy General Director Nguyen Ngoc Trong.

Experts assessed that the potential of the aviation market between the two countries is very huge with nearly 700,000 turns of passengers each year.

The opening of the Viet Nam-U.S. direct routes are expected to tighten comprehensive ties between the two countries.

Viet Nam and the U.S. signed an air transport agreement in 2003 that allows airlines to operate direct flights between the two countries.

Last year, the national carrier, Viet Nam Airlines, got license to operate flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Noi and the U.S. cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco (California); New York (New York), Seattle (Washington) and Dallas - Fort Worth (Texas)./.
