Passengers onboard the flight were minors under 18, the elderly, people with underlying illnesses, and guest workers whose labor contracts had terminated.

The Vietnamese embassy dispatched officials to the airport to assist the Vietnamese citizens with necessary procedures before they boarded the plane for home.

Vietnam Airlines strictly implemented security, safety and epidemiology measures during the flight, in order to protect the passengers’ health and prevent the spread of the virus.

After landing at Da Nang International Airport, all the passengers and crew members underwent medical check-ups and were transferred to quarantine facilities according to regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.
