She made the statement on February 25 when responding to reporters’ queries on Viet Nam’s plan to reopen repatriation flights, after the Vietnamese Government suspended flights bringing Vietnamese people back home in late January, given the appearance of new variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, new outbreaks in many countries, and complicated developments of the pandemic in Viet Nam.

She informed that recently, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has directed relevant offices to discuss with partners in countries with high safety factors about the resumption of commercial flights.

Several partners have expressed their wish to resume commercial flights with Viet Nam, and Viet Nam’s aviation agencies are considering and discussing specific procedures and dates, she added.
