The aviation authority in northern Vietnam has fined a teenage passenger VND4 million (US$173) for using others’ personal documents to fly from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City.

Ngo Phuong Tr., 19, was found showing the ID of another person when the passenger was subjected to a security check at Terminal 1 at Noi Bai airport in the Vietnamese capital at 1:30 pm on August 14.

The passenger, hailing from Dong Anh District, Hanoi, was using an ID card under the name of Le Dinh Tr. to carry out procedures to board flight BL 767 scheduled to leave for Ho Chi Minh City at 1:45 pm the same day.

Anyone committing such an administrative violation shall be subject to a fine of VND3-5 million ($130-216), according to aviation regulations.

The Northern Airports Authority then decided to impose a VND4 million penalty on the offender.

Earlier, the authority had required the aviation security center at Noi Bai to transfer Nguyen Thi D. Th. to police after finding her using a fake ID card to board a plane.

Th., 17 years old and coming from Chau Phu District, southern An Giang Province, was discovered carrying an ID that included personal features failing to match the passenger’s.

She was about to board flight VN 1207 from Hanoi to Can Tho City, located in the Mekong Delta, on August 10.

The passenger then admitted to having lost her own ID card and resorting to faking it for VND2 million ($86) via social media service.
