Over 360 Vietnamese citizens flown home from Singapore

More than 360 Vietnamese citizens were brought home from Singapore on a flight of Pacific Airlines on September 14.

The flight was 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, those with underlying health conditions and those in difficult circumstances.

The Vietnamese Embassy also sent its staff to the airport to assist them with boarding procedures.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, disease prevention measures were carried out during the flight. Upon landing at Can Tho International Airport in the Mekong Delta city of the same name, the flight crew and all passengers 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./.
