The Vietnamese Embassy sent its staff to the airport to assist them with boarding procedures.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, disease prevention measures were carried out during the flight. Upon landing at Cam Ranh airport in the South-Central province of Khanh Hoa, the flight crew and all passengers were given heath check-ups and quarantined in line with regulations.

In the future, more flights are set to be conducted to bring Vietnamese citizens with disadvantaged circumstances, depending on their need and quarantine capacity at home.
