The airline now operates two weekly flights between Ho Chi Minh City and San Francisco. It intends to raise the number of flights to seven per week as soon as the COVID-19 epidemic has been properly contained and regular international air routes have been reopened.
Additional routes between Los Angeles and Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh Cityare also planned.
