The FAA has awarded the country with the Category 1 (CAT 1) rating, which means air carriers from the country may initiate or continue services to the US and take part in reciprocal codeshare arrangements with US carriers.

After the announcement, national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, budget airline Vietjet Air, and newcomer Bamboo Airways have expressed their desires to fly to the US. 

There are currently no direct flights between the two countries, despite a large market catering to tourism and visits by friends and relatives. All passengers must transit in another country or territory such as China, Hong Kong, or Japan.
