The flight was conducted with great support from relevant Vietnamese and Japanese agencies, Vietnamese Embassy in Japan, along with Vietnamese budget carrier Vietjet Air.
Passengers on the flight included minors under 18, the elderly, sick people, pregnant women, workers with expired visas and contracts, students with no accommodation following the closure of their dormitories, and others who left stranded due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Vietnamese Embassy in Japan sent officers to the airport to assist citizens in making check-in procedures and solve arising issues.
Upon arrival at Danang International Airport, all passengers and crew members underwent medical check-ups and were subsequently placed into quarantine in line with regulations.
Following instructions of the Prime Minister, Vietnamese agencies will continue to coordinate with representative agencies abroad to arrange more flights to take Vietnamese citizens back home based on their wish and domestic quarantine capacity.
