Vietnam sees sharp fall in aviation accidents
Vietnam saw a considerable decline in the number of aviation accidents in the first eight months of this year, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV).
Between January and August, Vietnam witnessed 36 aviation accidents, down 45% on-year, including two serious cases.
According to the agency, 17 of the incidents were caused by human error and 14 others by technical errors and one by bad weather conditions, while the remaining four are still under investigation.
One of the two serious cases was flight VJ322 of budget carrier VietJet Air when an aircraft carrying 217 passengers from Phu Quoc Island to HCM City on June 16 skidded off the runway upon arrival at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, damaging one of its wheels.

Luckily, all passengers and crew members on the flight were safe and the plane was later pulled onto the runway. The runway was then shut down for 120 minutes.
The second severe incident involved the explosion of a tire as a Vietnam Airlines Airbus A321 which departed from HCM City Tan Son Nhat International Airport to Phnom Penh in Cambodia in March. No passengers or crew members were injured in the incident.
Also in March a Vietnam Airlines’ Boeing B787 suddenly moved forward and hit into a trolley, causing some technical problems while being about to fly on Danang to HCM City.
Earlier, the captain of Thai Lion Air’s flight SL180 violated a runway safety area because of failing to conform to instructions from air traffic control staff.
