    Default Vietnam Bringing the PHO to SFO!!

    Vietnam Airlines plans to operate its first scheduled flights to the US later this month, offering nonstop service between Ho Chi Minh City and San Francisco.
    The flag-carrier said the US Transportation Security Administration has given it the green light to begin regular service after a recent safety audit check. Flights will start once the FAA issues an operating permit.
    “As soon as the [permit is received], Vietnam Airlines will organize the first regular commercial direct flight between Vietnam and the US,” the Hanoi-based airline said in a statement. “According to the plan set out by the airline, the historic flight is expected to take off at the end of November this year.”
    Vietnam Airlines’ inaugural US route will connect Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International (SGN) with San Francisco (SFO). However, the carrier has not yet confirmed the planned schedule nor the aircraft it intends to use on the 12,598-km (7,828-mi.) route.
    Both Vietnam Airlines and Vietnamese counterpart Bamboo Airways already have permits to offer ad-hoc charter flights to and from the US, but Vietnam Airlines has become the first to be cleared for scheduled service.
