Passengers check-in to board the plane.

This is the first time such a flight has been launched to bring home Vietnamese students and labourers home from Japan who have missed family gatherings during Tet, the biggest festival in Vietnam, for years, a representative from the organisers said at the welcome ceremony at Noi Bai airport in Hanoi.

A representative from Vietnam Airlines stressed that the carrier is proud to join hands in bringing happiness to labourers during Tet, and stands ready to operate similar flights in the years to come.

The flight also celebrated the success of the 12th National Congress of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCYU) for 2022-2027, ahead of the 50th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties next year.
