The flight was arranged by Vietnamese authorities, the Vietnamese representative agencies in the two regions, the national flag carrier Vietnamese Airlines, and relevant agencies of over 20 host nations involved. Passengers included children under 18, students who finished learning courses, the elderly, pregnant women, stranded tourists, and workers with expired visas or labour contracts. The Vietnamese Consulate General in Frankfurt, Germany, sent staff to assist the citizens in handling boarding procedures at the Frankfurt Airport where all of them gathered to fly home. Security, safety and hygiene measures were carried out throughout the flight to protect their health and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
