According to the Vietnam Civil Aviation Authority (CAAV), the US Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) “highly considers” security arrangements at Vietnam’s two largest airports.

The CAAV statement came after the TSA carried out a 12-day inspection (December 2-13) at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi and Tan Son Nhat International Airport in HCMC to assess safety. direct flights between Vietnam and the United States.

TSA, considered one of the strictest aviation authorities in the world, completed its inspection without any proposed changes, CAAV said.

Part of the inspection consisted of an examination of the security arrangements in the transport of goods of 10 foreign airlines and the transport of passengers by the national carrier Vietnam Airlines.

The TSA also inspected other aviation functions, including catering, equipment maintenance and customs procedures. He expressed great consideration for the synchronization in the conduct of security rules and the quality of security checks at the two airports, CAAV said.

Vietnam Airlines became the first airline in Vietnam to start a scheduled flight to the United States last month.

Low-cost airline Bamboo Airways has received clearances to operate 12 charter flights to the United States from September through November. It is in the process of acquiring authorizations to operate regular flights between the two countries.
