HÀ NỘI — Nearly 280 Vietnamese citizens from over 30 countries in Europe, South America and Africa were brought home safely on a flight operated by the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines on Friday.
On Thursday and Friday, the Vietnamese authorities and representative agencies in Europe, South America and Africa, Vietnam Airlines and competent French authorities worked together to bring back home the citizens from the airport in Paris.
The passengers of the two flights included children under 18 years old, the elderly, sick people, students without accommodations due to university dormitory closures, and those in extremely difficult circumstances.
Upon landing at Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport in HCM City, the flight crew and all passengers were given heath examinations and quarantined in line with regulations.
Vietnamese authorities and overseas missions plan to arrange more flights to bring more Vietnamese citizens home, depending on their need and quarantine capacity at home. — VNS
