Hanoi (VNA) – More than 350 Vietnamese citizens were taken home from Taiwan (China) on two flights arranged by Vietnamese authorities, the Vietnam Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei, Bamboo Airways and Taiwanese competent agencies on October 5.

The passengers included the elderly, pregnant women, workers whose visas expired, students with ended training programmes, people with illnesses; and those having disadvantages.

The Vietnam Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei sent staff to the airport to assist them with boarding procedures.

The carrier strictly implemented in-flight security and disease prevention measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

Upon landing at the Da Nang International Airport in the central province of Da Nang, all crew members and passengers were given heath checkups and put into compulsory quarantine in accordance with regulations.

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