Vietjet Airbus A321 skids off the runway at Ho Chi Minh City airport


A Vietjet Air Airbus A321 registered VN-A657 skidded off the runway whilst landing at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City Sunday afternoon.

The aircraft was operating flight VJ322 from Duong Dong on Phu Quoc Island off the southern coast. As it landed on runway 25L at the former Saigon under heavy rain at 12:24, it skidded off the runway into a grass field after crossing two taxiways.

The incident affected many other flights, which were either cancelled, diverted or sent circling for long periods. Tan Son Nhat has two runways but one of them was closed for upgrade.

Vietjet confirmed the accident and said that all passengers have disembarked safely.
