Vietjet to Offer Free Repatriation Flight For Vietnamese in Ukraine
A representative of Vietjet Air on March 2 announced that the airline plans to operate a free flight bringing Vietnamese citizens in Ukraine home from Warsaw, the capital city of Poland, on March 6, according to VNA.
The flight is prompted by Vietjet's sense of responsibility to the community, and its wish to share the difficulties facing Vietnamese people and help them flee from the war area.
In its document, VietJet Air said it is always ready in terms of both human resources and aircraft to repatriate Vietnamese citizens in Ukraine in accordance with the instruction of management agencies.
Earlier, on February 28, the CAAV sent a written request to Vietnam Airlines, VietJet Air, and Bamboo Airways, asking them to prepare resources (aircraft, pilots, and crew members) and plans on conducting flights to repatriate Vietnamese and their family members in Ukraine.
At present, as it is not possible to operate flights to Ukraine which is a combat zone, the airlines have drafted plans to fly to several locations in Europe, which are Warsaw (Poland), Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Bratislava (Slovakia), Moscow (Russia) and Minsk (Belarus) to transport Vietnamese and their families in Ukraine to Vietnam.
Besides the above-mentioned locations, the airlines said they are ready to fly to any other locations decided by the Government, on the principle of ensuring safety and the most possible convenience for Vietnamese citizens and their families in Ukraine, according to Nhan Dan.
Following the Prime Minister's directions in Dispatch No. 201/CD-TTg, Vietjet has promptly considered various options to repatriate Vietnamese citizens from Ukraine.
In the dispatch, sent to ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies and agencies under the Government, and Chairpersons of People’s Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities, the PM asked the Transport Ministry to instruct Vietnamese airlines to put in place plans to transport Vietnamese citizens and their families in Ukraine to Viet Nam.
