A Jetstar Pacific Airbus A320-200, registration VN-A198 performing flight BL-595 from Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), was cleared for takeoff from Da Nang's runway 17L.

However, a Vietnam Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration VN-A356 performing flight VN-130 from Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang (Vietnam), had just landed on runway 17L and was still in the landing roll only about to vacate the runway, when the takeoff clearance was issued. The crew immediately complained to tower and made their presence known, tower cancelled the takeoff clearance about 4 seconds after that transmission.

Vietnam's Civil Aviation Authority (CAAV) reported, that the tower was occupied by a trainee at that time, the supervising controller had left his position at the time so that the trainee was alone at that time.

The CAAV concluded the causes of the serious incident were:

- The trainee did not check the runway before issuing the takeoff clearance.

- The tower was not staffed with licensed air traffic controllers

The CAAV reported the license of the supervising controller has been revoked.

The trainee has been prohibited to receive his license before Jul 11th 2015 and has to undergo additional training.

The Air Traffic Management Company and their regional manager were reprimanded for permitting a trainee on the tower unsupervised. The regional manager was suspended for 15 days.

The crew of Vietnam Airline's A321 were reprimanded for violating the requirement to report a safety relevant incident within 72 hours.
