A Vietnam Airlines repatriation flight brought home nearly 350 Vietnamese citizens from Canada on November 15 – 16 thanks to concerted efforts of competent authorities from both sides. Meanwhile, more than 290 Vietnamese citizens were flown home from Malaysia on November 15, which was arranged by the Vietnamese authorities, the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia and the national flag carrier.
On board the flights were children under 18, the elderly, people with illnesses, students who completed their courses in Canada, stranded tourists and people visiting relatives in Canada whose visas had expired, and those in extremely difficult circumstances.
In-flight safety and preventive measures against the spread of COVID-19 were strictly put in place by the national flag carrier to protect their health. Upon arrival at Quang Ninh’s Van Don International Airport and Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Son Nhat International Airport, all crew members and passengers were given medical checkups and sent to quarantine in line with regulations.
More repatriation flights are set to be conducted to bring Vietnamese citizens home, depending on their needs, and quarantine capacity in Vietnam.
