Passengers on board the flight were minors under 18, pregnant women, elderly people, guest workers with expired labour contracts, students without accommodations due to the closure of dormitories and other special cases.

Vietnamese representative agencies in Australia and New Zealand worked closely with their relevant agencies in the host countries to facilitate the citizens’ travel to airports in Sydney and Melbourne amid local travel restrictions due to COVID-19. They also sent staff to the airports to assist the citizens with necessary procedures before departure. Bamboo Airways strictly implemented security, safety and epidemiological measures during the flight to prevent the possible spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Right after the plane landed at Can Tho International Airport in southern Vietnam, all crew members and passengers underwent medical check-ups and were transferred to concentrated quarantine facilities in accordance with regulations.

Relevant Vietnamese agencies are arranging similar repatriation flights for Vietnamese citizens overseas wishing to return to the homeland, depending on the epidemic containment situation and quarantine capacity in the country.
