    Vietnam Airlines received regulatory approval from the US Department of Transportation to operate passenger and freight services from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, via the intermediate points Taipei, and Osaka and Nagoya, to the coterminal points Los Angeles and San Francisco, New York, Seattle, and Dallas Fort Worth (Vietnam Investment Review, 07-Sep-2019). The approval also allows Vietnam Airlines to operate to 25 co-terminal US points and beyond on a codeshare basis with an authorised American or third country carrier.
