Passengers boarding the plane were minors under 18, the elderly, sick people, pregnant women, students without accommodation, guest workers whose visas and labour contracts had expired, and tourists stranded due to COVID-19 in Malaysia.
The Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia dispatched officials to the airport to assist the citizens with necessary procedures before they boarded the plane.
Preventive measures were taken seriously during the flight. After landing at Can Tho International Airport in southern Vietnam, all crew members and passengers had their body temperature checked and went under quarantine as regulated.
Under the Prime Minister’s instruction, Vietnamese authorities and representative offices abroad will continue conducting more flights to bring Vietnamese citizens home in the coming time, based on the pandemic developments at home and abroad, the citizens’ aspirations, and quarantine capacity in localities.
