HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese agencies in and outside the country worked with the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and French agencies on Sunday and Monday to arrange a flight for more than 280 Vietnamese citizens in France and some other European countries to return to Việt Nam.
Passengers on the flight were those under 18, the elderly, the ill, workers with expired labour contracts and students without accommodations due to school closures, and other people in difficult circumstances.
Pandemic prevention measures were implemented strictly during the flight, and crew and passengers were quarantined upon arrival at Vân Đồn International Airport in northern Quảng Ninh Province, as per regulations.
At the direction of Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc, Vietnamese agencies at home and representative offices abroad will continue to conduct flights bringing citizens home based on their needs and domestic quarantine capacity. — VNS
