VN-US to open direct air routes in 2018



Chief Executive Officer Duong Tri Thanh said Viet Nam Airlines began preparing to provide direct flights to the U.S. 10 years ago.

The carrier has focused on enhancing the long-haul flying experience for passengers by expanding its fleet with larger airplanes, including Airbus 350 – 900s and Boeing B787 Dreamliners, Thanh added.

FAA plans to come to Viet Nam to give assessment about the system and may grant CAT1 in accordance with IASA standards (international aviation safety assessment) to CAAV.

Once getting approval from FAA, the U.S. Department of Transportation will consider granting freedom to Viet Nam’s airlines to open direct air routes to the U.S.

A CAAV report shows that the aviation market in 2016 witnessed strong growth in passenger and cargo air transport output and flight regulations. 

The watchdog agency said the work of ensuring aviation safety was implemented well in a year of increased growth rate in aviation.

This was the 19th consecutive year Viet Nam has ensured safety for flights with no serious accidents.
