Especially, thanks to the close cooperation between the Vietnamese Embassy in Egypt and Kuwait, four Vietnamese passengers stranded in Egypt for nearly three months have the opportunity to travel to Kuwait and return to Vietnam through the special flights of Bamboo Airways.

"The Vietnamese community in Egypt is extremely small, so it's complicated for us to repatriate to Vietnam. I feel like this is a dream because there is almost no chance for us to be back home in this period. Through this arduous journey back, I would like to thank the support of the Government and the Embassies of Vietnam in Egypt and Kuwait, as well as Bamboo Airways", said Ms. Duong Thu Hang (36 years old, Hanoi) – one of the four passengers stuck in Egypt.
