Vietjet Air strictly carried out security and safety measures during the flight to protect passengers’ health and prevent the spread of the disease.

Immediately after the flight landed at Can Tho International Airport in the Mekong Delta city of the same name, all passengers and crew members were given health check and brought to concentrated quarantine facilities in line with regulations.

Under the Prime Minister’s direction, domestic authorities and Vietnam’s overseas representative offices will continue arranging flights to take Vietnamese citizens home, depending on the citizens’ need and the country’s quarantine capacity.
