The passengers on board the flight include people under 18, pregnant women, elderly people, people with illness, and others in special difficult circumstances.

To ensure the safety of the passengers and crew members and prevent the spread of COVID-19, the carrier strictly implemented security, safety, and hygiene measures during the flight.

After landing at Tan Son Nhat international airport, all the passengers and crew members underwent medical check-ups and were taken to quarantine facilities, in line with the country’s regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.

Earlier on May 21, VietJet Air conducted a special flight, repatriating 240 Vietnamese citizens left stranded in Myanmar due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Under Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s recent instructions, domestic authorities and Vietnamese overseas representative offices are making plans to bring home more Vietnamese nationals based on their needs and the nation’s current quarantine capacity.
