Vietjet A320 at Vinh City on Mar 26th 2019, runway incursion
Last Update: March 28, 2019 / 20:57:23 GMT/Zulu time
A Vietnam Airlines Airbus A321-200 registration VN-A345 performing flight VN-1715 from Hanoi to Vinh City (Vietnam), was on short final to Vinh City when the Vietjet A320 crossed the hold short line prompting the crew to go around. The aircraft positioned for another approach and landed safely about 15 minutes later.
The Vietjet departed and reached Ho Chi Minh City without further incident.
On Mar 28th 2019 Vietnam's CAA decided to open an investigation into the occurrence and suspend the Vietjet crew pending that investigation. The Vietjet crew had been instructed to hold short of the runway and had correctly read back the instruction, but subsequently taxied onto the runway after mishearing another ATC instruction.
