The flight was arranged by the Vietnamese authorities, the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia, the carrier and authorities of Malaysia.

Passengers included pregnant women, those with underlying health conditions, under-18 children, workers with expired labor contracts, and other especially disadvantaged cases.

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 needs and quarantine capacity at home.
