The passengers include the elderly, pregnant women, the sick, stranded tourists, labourers with expired contracts, and apprentices and students without accommodations.

The Vietnamese Embassy sent its staff to the airport to support them.

Disease prevention measures were carried out throughout the flight to prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

All passengers and the crew were also given heath examinations rightly after arrival at Tan Son Nhat International Airport and then they were sent to a concentrated quarantine area in line with regulations.

Under the Prime Minister’s direction, more Vietnamese citizens abroad will be brought home, depending on the citizens’ need and the country’s quarantine capacity./.
