The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has issued a decision to slap three passengers from Ho Chi Minh City, northern Hung Yen Province and north-central Nghe An Province with flight bans from nine months to one year for disruptive behavior, phone stealing and smoking.

The passenger from Ho Chi Minh City is Le Thi Xuan N., 43, who attacked and hit the head of Nguyen Thi Tr. from central Quang Ngai Province. They boarded the same flight VJ375 from Chu Lai Airport in central Quang Nam Province to Tan Son Nhat International Airport in the southern metropolis on July 15.

N. is banned from flying through December 25, 2021 and subject to an administrative fine for her acts of violation that caused public disorder in the passenger terminal area.

Nguyen Van Q., 43, from Hung Yen was similarly punished for stealing another passenger’s mobile phone at a security screening booth at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi before boarding flight VJ137 from the Vietnamese capital city to Ho Chi Minh City on November 9. 

Noi Bai’s security officers asked their counterparts at Tan Son Nhat to detain Q. upon his arrival at the Ho Chi Minh City-based airport.

The other passenger is Le Van H., 32, from Nghe An, who was caught smoking in the lavatory on flight QH1153 from Vinh City to Ho Chi Minh City on May 15.

H. will not be allowed to board any flights in or departing from Vietnam for nine months starting December 26.

The CAAV requested all Vietnamese and foreign airlines to not carry the three aforementioned passengers during their flight ban periods.
