Hanoi (VNA) – Two additional flights bringing home Vietnamese evacuated from Ukraine to neighbouring countries are scheduled to arrive in Hanoi on March 17 and 19.

The flights are operated by the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and financed by Sun Group, each carrying 240 people from Bucharest (Romania) and Warsaw (Poland).

As of March 16 noon, Vietnamese representative offices evacuated more than 4,600 people from Ukraine to its neighbouring countries, of whom nearly 1,200 were flown home safely on March 7, 9 and 13.

Most of the citizens feeling to Romania and Poland who wish to return to their homeland have received support to complete necessary procedures.

The Vietnamese offices will further keep in touch with and provide updates for the community, while coordinating with local competent agencies and Vietnamese associations to ensure safety for overseas Vietnamese and their family members.
