The Vietnamese aviation authorities grounded two foreign pilots after a VietJet Air passenger plane they controlled fell off a runway when it landed in Ho Chi Minh City, state media reported on Monday.
The plane, which arrived from the tourist island of Phu Quoc, slid off the runway at Tan Son Nhat Airport on Sunday due to heavy rain and tailwind, said VietJet in a statement.
The Vietnamese civil aviation authority has also confiscated the licenses of the two pilots until the investigation into the incident, the official news agency Vietnam reported.
"The plane, passengers, and crew are all safe," said VietJet in the statement, without saying how many were on board.
Local media reports said the airport was temporarily closed on Sunday due to the incident, adding that the plane was an Airbus A321neo.
