HCMC – Amid concerns over potential safety risks resulting from additional flights of local air carriers, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has urged these carriers to take proactive measures to ensure air travel safety.

The directive was issued following the temporary suspension of operations for a large number of Airbus A321neo airplanes due to the maintenance of PW1100 engines used for these jetliners.

In the wake of the aircraft shortage, local airlines have rescheduled slot times and added night flights to meet the air travel demand.

To ensure the efficient and safe use of aircraft, the CAAV requires airlines to organize aircraft maintenance, prepare full supplies of materials, parts, equipment, and tools for maintenance, and detect signs of malfunctions. These measures aim to ensure that aircraft are in optimal conditions.

The CAAV highlighted the importance of regular training for staff, updating training programs with contents identified through safety investigation systems. Meanwhile, cabin crews are required to strictly comply with operational regulations and procedures in adverse weather conditions as well as safety guidance from the CAAV.
