The 2019 North Korea – United States Summit is scheduled to take place in Hanoi Vietnam that opens many good opportunities, including the travel to Vietnam from U.S. with direct flights. The 2-day meeting between North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un and the U.S. President Donald Trump on February 27-28, 2019 in Hanoi will mark the significant milestones in the humankind’s history. After this event, people can hope for the U.S. – Vietnam direct flights that save travel time much. As a result, tourism development is promising.
The U.S. – Vietnam flights with American Airlines about 17 hours
In particular, passengers of the American Airlines flying from Los Angeles to Vietnam will spend one night on the aircraft. The flight will have transit in Tokyo around 1 hour 30 minutes. The entire time (including flying and transit) will be approximately 17 hours. It can be said that this is the fastest flight between U.S. and Vietnam at present.
The Vietnam – U.S. Direct Flights with Vietnam Airlines till 2020
Always aiming to improve aviation connectivity with tourism niches, Vietnam – U.S. direct flights become more and more practical ideas that cut the travel time between the two countries in an optimal way. In fact, the ideas have been put into practice before the announcement about the summit meeting between the U.S. and North Korean officials in Hanoi Vietnam.
Talking back to the year of 2018, the national carrier Vietnam Airlines informed the plans to open the non-stop routes between U.S. and Vietnam. However, on the general meeting of Vietnam Airlines on May 10, 2018, the general director said that these non-stop flights will be only launched in 2020 and that they needed more preparations. As known, Vietnam Airlines has applied for the commercial airworthiness license to the U.S. Department of Transportation. But, they need more calculations and things to be prepared before launching direct routes. So at this moment Feb 2019, travel to Vietnam from US still with transit flight.
The Second Trump Kim Summit 2019 in Hanoi Vietnam
Having diplomatic relations with both North Korea and United States, Vietnam has been chosen as the host country where the two famous leaders should meet. And, Hanoi capital is the “City for Peace” ranked by the UNESCO that witnesses this historic summit. Following the first Trump – Kim summit, this second meeting promises to be a good time for both officials to enhance the foreign relations. Also, this is an excellent opportunity for the Vietnamese leaders to meet the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) and U.S. officials.
According to BBC NEWS, they believe that the DPRK Chairman Kim Jong-un will learn more about the economic growth of Vietnam, which is a communist country (similar to North Korea). One important point is that Vietnamese citizens are able to visit neighboring countries on a regular basis while the country is attracting foreign investment and developing closer relations with other countries all over the world. It is important to make clear that international cooperation for development is not a sign of surrender to the international pressure or the U.S. particularly.
It’s reasonable to believe that the second Trump Kim Summit 2019 in Hanoi Vietnam will enhance the possibility to make the U.S. – Vietnam direct flights happen soon. When the U.S. President and the North Korea leader shake hands (just like they did at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018), we have the firm evidence to hope for peace in the world. And for Vietnam, when the non-stop routes between U.S. and Vietnam become possible, it will bring economic opportunities and international tourists to the host country that is peaceful, charming, and friendly.
So, you’re thinking of the direct flights to Vietnam from U.S. to save travel time? We’ll soon have it especially after the world-class Trump – Kim summit on this February in Hanoi Vietnam.
