Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnamese carrier Bamboo Airways freshly announced that it will conduct its first repatriation flight for Vietnamese citizens in Ukraine on March 9.

The flight uses Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft for its journey from Warsaw, Poland to Hanoi.  

According to a representative of Bamboo Airways, the airline is ready to operate seven routes to bring Vietnamese in Ukraine home. They are those linking Hanoi with Prague (Czech Republic), Bucharest (Romania), Warsaw (Poland), Budapest (Hungary), Bratislava (Slovakia), Moscow (Russia), and Minsk (Belarus).

Bamboo Airways affirmed it has adequate experience, resources and a well-prepared operation plan to ensure the successful implementation of these repatriation flights.

Earlier, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed that there are currently about 7,000 Vietnamese in Ukraine, with most of them being in Kiev (800 people), Kharkiv (3,000), and Odessa (3,000).

According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), the expected option is that the citizens will move by land to neighbouring countries and then flights will be organised to bring them home from there. Those in Kiev will move to Poland, in Kharkiv to Russia, and in Odessa to Moldova or Romania./.
