Hanoi – Nearly 280 Vietnamese citizens, stranded in 10 European countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, were brought home on September 16-17 on a Vietnam Airlines flight.
The flight was arranged by Vietnamese authorities and representative organisations in Europe, national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, and authorities of the 10 European nations.
The Vietnamese Consulate General in Frankfurt sent its staff to the airport to assist the passengers with boarding procedures.
