A passenger opened the exit slide and refused to pay fines
A passenger from Quang Ninh Province was banned from flying for nine months from June 20 to March 19, 2022. He smoked in the plane’s toilet during a flight on March 16 and didn’t comply with the instructions to stop.
A passenger born in 1993 from Ha Giang Province was also banned from flying for nine months after he opened the exit slide on the plane and refused to pay fines.
Four other passengers from Hanoi, Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh and Phu Quoc used fake papers to board planes. All four passengers refused to pay fines and will be banned from flying for 12 months from June 20 to June 19, 2022.
The Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam asked the airports and airlines to update data to recognise the banned passengers. Official documents will be sent to the police, customs departments and related firms.
The Northern Airport Authority, Southern Airport Authority and Middle Airport Authority will be responsible for notifying the passengers.
