According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the flight was arranged by authorities of the two countries and the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.
Passengers are mainly students with no residences due to dormitory closures.
After landing at the airport, all passengers and crew members of the flight were given health check-ups and sent to quarantine areas.
To date, over 120 repatriation flights have been arranged by Vietnamese authorities since April 10 to help nearly 36000 local people stranded abroad due to Covid-19 return home, the ministry said, adding that more such flights are set to be conducted in the coming time.
