After technical issues were resolved at Phu Quoc International Airport on Phu Quoc Island off Kien Giang Province in southern Vietnam, an Airbus A330-202 with registration number EAZ212, operated by Eznis Airways, took off at 1:37 pm on Thursday, with 200 passengers bound for Mongolia.

Nguyen Minh Dong, director of Phu Quoc International Airport, said on Thursday that the flight departed the airport at about 3:00 am on Wednesday.

However, the aircraft encountered a technical problem and had to revert to a holding pattern for three hours.

It later landed safely at Phu Quoc International Airport.

Airport authorities coordinated with relevant agencies to take the flight’s passengers to local hotels so that they could rest before boarding the flight again.

After the issues were resolved, the flight took off at 1:37 pm on Thursday and arrived in Mongolia at about 7:30 pm the same day.
