HCMC – A Vietnam Airlines flight which was set to leave Hanoi for HCMC was delayed for an hour this morning, November 2, after a passenger was found burning tissue paper on board.

Flight VN243 operated on a Boeing 787-9 aircraft was scheduled to leave Noi Bai airport in Hanoi at 8 a.m. in the day. However, as the plane taxied from the apron to the runway for takeoff, a Vietnam Airlines flight attendant discovered a male passenger in Seat 20A using a lighter to burn tissue paper.

On being discovered, the man quickly put out the flame. No damages were caused to the flight.

The flight crew immediately decided to return to the apron, reported the incident and handed over the passenger to airport security officials.

The flight then took off at 9 a.m. in the day.

The top priority of Vietnam Airlines is to ensure passenger and flight safety. The national flag carrier requested passengers to fully comply with air travel regulations. The carrier hopes to garner passenger sympathy for the unexpectedly rescheduled flight caused by the incident, said a Vietnam Airlines representative.
