Vietnam Airlines Airbus A321 mistakenly landed on a non-operational runway

April 30, 2018


Vietnam Airlines A321 flight VN7344 landed on a non-operational runway at Cam Ranh International Airport (Khanh Hoa) at 14h53 on 29 April 2018. The flight from Ho Chi Minh City with 203 passengers and 7 crew members landed on runway 20L and got stuck because there is no taxiway connecting to the terminal.


The aircraft suffered minor damages as it landed on the runway under construction. Vietnam Airlines has suspended flight crew members including a captain who is a U.S citizen working for Vietnam Airlines since January 2018.

All passengers were evacuated safely and transported to terminal.


Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam has confirmed the incident and opened an inquiry.
