Bamboo Airways has been granted a license by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration to operate 12 direct flights to the U.S. from September to November, the Vietnamese hybrid airline said on Tuesday.

The departing locations include Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi and Da Nang International Airport in the central coastal city of Da Nang. 

The destinations in the U.S. are key international airports such as San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport in California, and Seattle - Tacoma International Airport in the state of Washington.

The first verified direct flight will be operated on September 23, thereby paving the way for a series of activities to take place in the U.S., including the signing of a memorandum of understanding with San Francisco and Los Angeles International Airports, along with the debut of the Vietnamese airline’s official representative office.

In May, Bamboo Airways officially received slots to operate regular direct flights from Ho Chi Minh City to San Francisco and Los Angeles, starting September 1.
