Mr. Vo Huy Cuong, Deputy Director of Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, said to receive the guidance redirecting the flights from the Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long in the afternoon of July 24.

"This direction will be implemented immediately. Domestic flights from and to Danang will still be operated until the latest announcement," Mr. Cuong said. International flights scheduled to fly to Danang will be redirected to other airports; after landing, passengers are kept quarantined in accordance with current regulations.

Hoang Huu Cuong, deputy director of Da Nang International Airport, said in July that the airport had welcomed about 10 flights to repartriate overseas Vietnamese and transport foreign experts to Vietnam.

"It is expected that in the next few days, Da Nang airport will continue to take repatriation flights from abroad. However, under the current emergency, these flights will be rescheduled," said Cuong.
