Da Nang (VNA) – Two Vietnam Airlines flights landed in Da Nang airport on October 12, carrying more than 330 passengers from southern localities to the central city.

The passengers included 21 medical workers who have completed their mission of supporting pandemic control activities in southern localities.

The others are mostly people having special circumstance such as pregnant women, relatives of dead victims of COVID-19, people discharged from hospital in the recent six months, and the elderly.

The flights were operated with the sponsorship of Da Nang International Terminal Investment and Operation JSC and the support of the People’s Committee of Da Nang as well as relevant agencies and the national-flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.

All the passengers had tested negative to SARS-CoV-2 within 72 hours before departure and will undergo quarantine in line with regulations. Strict pandemic safety measures were applied during the flights.

Earlier, Vietnam Airlines also carried over 600 Da Nang migrants back to the city in late July. As COVID-19 has been gradually contained in many localities and restriction measures have been loosened, the airline is working with localities to build plans to bring migrant workers back to their hometown in a safe manner, while continuing with the transport of frontline forces and medical supplies, and gradually resuming domestic passenger transport activities./.
