Nearly 360 Vietnamese citizens have returned home safely from the US on a national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines flight.

The passengers included children aged below 18, the elderly, the sick, stranded tourists, students who have completed their study but lack accommodation due to dormitory shutdowns, and those living in difficult circumstances.

The Vietnamese Embassy in the US helped many passengers with their check-in procedures for the flight.

Upon arrival at Danang International Airport on Tuesday, all of the passengers and the crew members were sent to a quarantine site to avoid Covid-19 infection risks.

Security, safety and disease prevention measures were seriously applied during the flight.

According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, around 200 repatriation flights will be held to bring Vietnamese citizens home from Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan between December 1 and January 15.

Passengers will pay the airlines the ticket, quarantine at appointed hotels, transportation and testing fees. Other fees will be paid at the hotels. Van Don, Danang, Cam Ranh and Can Tho airports each will receive three flights from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan every week. Another three airports which can organise quarantine areas for a large number of passengers will receive one flight a day for each airport.
