The passengers included children under 18, the elderly, students completing their learning courses and facing accommodation difficulties, stranded tourists, and workers with expired visas and labor contracts.

Vietnamese missions have assisted the citizens in completing procedures to travel to gather in Paris. Security, safety and hygiene measures were carried out throughout the flight to protect their health and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Right after landing at the Tan Son Nhat international airport in Ho Chi Minh City, the passengers and crewmembers received health check-ups. They were sent to concentrated quarantine facilities in line with regulations.

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