COVID-19 pandemic has become more and more complicated and unpredictable on a global scale with the number of infected people and deaths increasing rapidly as time goes by and there is no sign of stopping.

Particularly in Vietnam, for the past over 20 days (from 6 – 27 March), there have been 147 new cases in various provinces, 9 times higher than the initial number.

Today, on March 27, the Prime Minister issued Directive No.15/CT-TTg on the implementation of COVID-19 prevention and control.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has instructed Vietnam’s representative offices abroad to continue advocating, advising overseas Vietnamese to minimize the return to the home country at the present time and strictly follow the prevention measures of the host country.

The Ministry of Transport has instructed to restrict flights and passenger transport activities from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to other places nationwide, suspending or reorganizing public transport activities to limit travelling or group gathering.

As the Directive of the Government: this is a very important and decisive moment in the whole fight against COVID-19 outbreak in Vietnam.

In recent time, Bamboo Airways has actively coordinated with diplomatic agencies to conduct charter flights for humanitarian purposes. Recently, the flight from Hanoi – Prague to bring Czech and European citizens back to their home country was carried out by Bamboo Airways.

However, in the circumstance of an increasingly complicated pandemic situation, Bamboo Airways determines to follow comprehensively and closely the latest regulations and recommendations of the authorities, in order to contribute to the best protection of people’s health.

Therefore, from now until April 15, we are required to make some temporary and necessary adjustments in operation, applicable to both regular flights and charter flights for humanitarian purposes, in order to contribute to ensuring the safety of public health, preventing the pandemic situation in Vietnam from creating more complex risk in the context of medical staff and authorities being under tremendous pressure.
