Vietjet will team up with relevant authorities to operate four flights connecting Da Nang to Ha Noi and HCM City on Thursday and Friday to bring passengers stranded in the central city back home.

According to Vietjet, two flights from Da Nang to Ha Noi will depart at 9am and 4pm while two others from Da Nang to HCM City will also take off at 9am and 4am.

Passengers on these flights are tourists including many children, stranded in Da Nang due the social distancing order in the city. Upon their arrival, all passengers and cabin crew must undergo health examinations and follow local quarantine requirements. These are the first domestic flights operated by Vietjet to repatriate passengers locally in Viet Nam due to COVID-19.

Previously, Vietjet also operated many flights to repatriate Vietnamese citizens from all over the world and transported thousands of tonnes of essential goods and medical equipment for pandemic prevention while providing free transportation for doctors and medical staff.

As of July, Vietjet had brought nearly 10,000 Vietnamese citizens home safely from Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan (China), Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Brunei, Indonesia and Myanmar.

All flights are in line with global standards and guidelines from local authorities, the World Health Organisation and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in order to ensure the health and safety of passengers, crew and the community. — VNS
