Following the incident, the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) decided on June 14 to reopen another runaway at the airport, the 25R/07L which had previously been closed for upgrading. It was closed again at 9am on June 15.

Flight VJ322 arrived at Tan Son Nhat from Phu Quoc Island off Vietnam’s southern coast and slid out of runway 25L/07R onto the grass upon landing amid a heavy downpour at noon on June 14. All passengers and crew were safe.

The two pilots of the flight, both foreigners, have been grounded and their licenses temporarily seized. The six flight attendants on the flight have also been suspended.

The CAAV has set up an inspection team to investigate the incident, decode the black box of the Airbus A321neo aircraft, and analyze the flight data.

Nearly 200 flights were affected by the incident.
