HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese and Ethiopian airlines repatriated more than 130 Vietnamese citizens from Nigeria, Cameroon and Malaysia.
On June 24, 90 Vietnamese citizens were brought home from Nigeria and Cameroon, with support from the Vietnamese Embassy in Nigeria in collaboration with local authorities.
They were taken to Lagos where they boarded a flight operated by the Ethiopian flag carrier to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Later on June 25, the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia and Vietnam Airlines took them along with another 40 Vietnamese workers who were stranded in Malaysia.
After landing at Tân Sơn Nhất international airport in HCM City, they were immediately quarantined under close medical supervision in line with COVID-19 prevention and control regulations.
Considering the pandemic situation at home and abroad and quarantine capacity in localities, representative Vietnamese agencies and domestic airlines will continue to run more charter flights to bring citizens homes. — VNS
