The operation process of low-cost carrier VietJet Air has been put under special supervision of the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) following the June 19 incident when a flight of the carrier took passengers to a wrong destination.

The month-long special supervision will cover four categories, from the company’s organisational structure and personnel, contracts on aircraft use and maintenance, flight control, ground services to operation protocol at departure and arrival airports as well as pilots’ observation of flight regulations, according to CAAV Director Lai Xuan Thanh.

In addition, the airline’s compliance with CAAV warnings will also be put under close monitoring.

On June 19, Vietjet Air flight VJ 8861, which was supposed to land at Lien Khuong airport in the central highland resort city of Da Lat, brought nearly 200 passengers to Cam Ranh airport near the beach city of Nha Trang in the central province of Khanh Hoa.

Right after the incident, Vietjet Air arranged another flight to bring the passengers to Da Lat. They arrived at the Lien Khuong airport at 9:50 pm the same day.-VNA
