The flight was jointly organised by Vietnam’s competent agencies, the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia and the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.
The passengers included those under 18 years old, elderly and sick people, students who did not have accommodations due to dormitory closures, guest workers with visa and work permit expiration, and stranded tourists.
Like other repatriation flights, passengers were required to undergo medical check before boarding and wear masks throughout the journey.
On arrival in Vietnam, all crew members and travelers had health checks and were sent to quarantine centers, in line with prevailing regulations, to prevent the risk of community spread of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
Over the past few days, under the prime minister’s directive, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport and other competent agencies and some representative offices in foreign countries, launched a series of flights to repatriate Vietnamese nationals.
In the coming days, more flights will be arranged to bring back Vietnamese citizens home from other countries depending on the pandemic's developments, quarantine capacity of Vietnamese localities, and demand of Vietnamese citizens living overseas.
Passengers check in before boarding.
