The passengers included under-18 children, the elderly, the ill, pregnant women, students and workers with expired visa and labor contracts and stranded tourists. Doctors and nurses who accompanied Patient 91 – a British pilot - on the trip home earlier also returned to Vietnam on this flight.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, disease prevention measures were carried out during the flight. After landing at Van Don International Airport in the northern province of Quang Ninh, crew members and all passengers had their body temperature checked and went under quarantine as regulated.

Under the Prime Minister’s direction, domestic authorities and Vietnam’s overseas representative offices are making plans to fly more Vietnamese citizens home, depending on the citizens’ need and the country’s quarantine capacity.
