Vietnam Airlines (Hanoi) is planning to launch the Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) – San Francisco route with regular flights in late October according to Bloomberg.
It won’t be the first time the airline has been at SFO.
In the early morning of August 25, 2021 flight VN9 operated by Vietnam Airlines from San Francisco (USA) landed safely at Noi Bai Airport. The flight brought 277 Vietnamese citizens in the United States back home, and transported more than 6.2 tons of medical equipment and supplies from overseas Vietnamese in the United States to send and share with compatriots in the country. This is also the first time in history that a flight operated by a Vietnamese airline is licensed to transport goods between the two countries.
