HÀ NỘI — Almost 350 Vietnamese citizens in Europe and Africa were brought home aboard a Vietnam Airlines flight on August 26-27.
The flight was arranged by Vietnamese authorities, the Vietnamese representative agencies in the two regions, the national flag carrier Vietnamese Airlines, and relevant agencies of the more than 20 host nations involved.
The Vietnamese Consulate General in Frankfurt, Germany, sent staff to assist the citizens in handling boarding procedures at Frankfurt Airport in Germany where all of them gathered to fly home.
Security, safety and hygiene measures were carried out throughout the flight to protect their health and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Upon landing at Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport HCM City, those on board received health check-ups and were sent to concentrated quarantine facilities.
More flights are set to be conducted to repatriate Vietnamese citizens in tough circumstances, depending on their needs and domestic quarantine capacity. — VNS
