CAM RANH — A Jetstar Pacific plan was forced to land at Cam Ranh International Airport in Khánh Hòa Province after failing to land due to bad weather at Đà Lạt City’s Liên Khương airport yesterday.
The budget airline said the Airbus plane carrying 180 passengers from Hà Nội to Đà Lạt from 10.50am, was scheduled land at Liên Khương airport at about 12:20pm, but the pilot could not make a safe landing due to the poor weather.
The plane then landed at Cam Ranh airport at 1:10pm before returning to Liên Khương airport at 2:13pm the same day.
Jetstar Pacific said bad weather in Đà Lạt City also resulted in delays for flights from Đà Lạt to Hà Nội and other routes.
Last week, a plane of the budget airline had a slight collision with a bird after landing at Đồng Hới Airport in Quảng Bình Province.
Jetstar Pacific, a member of Jetstar Group, has grown from five aircraft in 2013 to 12 aircraft and flies on 32 domestic and international routes. –– VNS
