The flight had been arranged by authorities from both Vietnam and the UAE, in addition to local airline Bamboo Airways.
The majority of passengers onboard the flight were made up of minors under the age of 18, the elderly, individuals suffering from illnesses, labourers with expired work contracts and visas, in addition to others facing challenging circumstances.
In order to assist citizens, the Vietnamese Embassy in the UAE sent staff to the airport to assist with all necessary procedures ahead of the flight’s departure.
Moreover, Bamboo Airways strictly implemented a range of measures on security, safety, and hygiene throughout the journey to protect the health of citizens and prevent the possible spread of the novel coronavirus.
Once the aircraft landed at Can Tho International Airport, all members of the flight crew and passengers underwent medical check-ups and were immediately transferred to quarantine facilities in line with regulations relating to COVID-19 prevention and control.
In the coming time, bringing home Vietnamese citizens with extremely difficult circumstances will be arranged by relevant agencies based on their needs and the nation’s current quarantine capacity.
