The passengers included the elderly, pregnant women, those in poor health conditions, stranded travellers, workers with expired labour contracts, students with no accommodations due to hostel closures, and other especially difficult cases.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Japan sent staff to the airport to directly support the citizens.

To ensure the health of citizens and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam Airlines strictly implemented measures on security, safety, hygiene and epidemiology during the flight.

Right upon their landing at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport, all passengers and crew members received medical checks and were placed under concentrated quarantine in line with regulations.

Under the Prime Minister’s direction, domestic authorities and Vietnam’s overseas representative offices will continue to prepare plans to repatriate Vietnamese citizens, depending on citizens’ needs and the quarantine capacity in the country.
