National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines used a "super aircraft" Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner to carry the Vietnamese athletes.
Among the athletes on their way home were the men's U22 football team and the women’s football team, who won two gold medals for Vietnam.
Vietnam finished the competition in second place in the medal tally with 98 gold, 85 silver, and 105 bronze medals.
