​Vietnam Airlines flight delayed after dogs ‘invade’ Cam Ranh airport

​Vietnam Airlines flight delayed after dogs ‘invade’ Cam Ranh airport

Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 14:01 GMT+7

One Vietnam Airlines flight and several military flights were delayed after three dogs made their way inside the grounds of Cam Ranh International Airport in south-central Vietnam on Tuesday.

Officers at the Khanh Hoa-based airport discovered three dogs in the aerodrome, east of the runway, delaying some military training flights and one Hanoi-bound Vietnam Airlines plane by 20 minutes.

Vietnam Airlines said the 20-minute delay did not cause significant damage to the carrier or to the schedules of its passengers.

Cam Ranh Airport has two gates to the east side, one to serve vehicles of a road construction project inside the airport, and one for the military brigade 954 stationed there.

There is also a wall south-west of a reservoir on the airport land that has a crack wide enough for animals to sneak through. It’s suspected that from one of these access points, the dogs made their way into the restricted area.

This is not the first time this year that flights have been affected by animals inside airports in Vietnam.

Six cases alone have been recorded at Cat Bi airport in the northern city of Hai Phong, along with multiple similar ones at Tan Son Nhat International in Ho Chi Minh City.
