HANOI: Vietnam’s aviation authority has suspended the crew of a plane operated by budget airline VietJet Air after a flight bound for the tourist hub of Da Lat landed at another airport more than 100km away.
The scheduled flight VJ 8575 carrying 200 passengers landed at Cam Ranh airport near the coastal city of Nha Trang – another popular tourist destination – on Thursday night, instead of the Central Highlands town of Da Lat around 130km to the southwest.
The incident occurred “because of the flight coordinators and crew members of VietJet Air, who did not correctly follow flight procedures“, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam in an online statement. — AFP
