Initially, outgoing flights from Vietnam will prioritize Vietnamese passengers seeking to study or work abroad or visit family, as well as foreigners in Vietnam seeking repatriation.
Returning flights will, as of early April, prioritize the repatriation of Vietnamese citizens, limiting non-citizen passengers to special cases in compliance with government regulations.
