Hanoi (VNA) – Close to 360 Vietnamese citizens were brought home from Singapore on two flights of Pacific Airlines on October 12.

The flights were arranged by Vietnamese authorities, the Embassy of Vietnam in Singapore and the carrier, together with competent agencies of Singapore.

The passengers included children under 18, the elderly, those with underlying health conditions and others in difficult circumstances.

The Vietnamese Embassy sent its staff to the airport to assist them in completing procedures before boarding.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, disease prevention measures were carried out during the flights. Upon landing at Can Tho International Airport in the Mekong Delta city of the same name, crewmembers and all passengers on the two flights were given heath check-ups and quarantined in line with regulations.

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