The CAVA banned Duong Dinh Tung, 1984, for a year and Dao Vinh Thuan for 6 months from flying at domestic and international flights, saying that the two passengers’ behaviors seriously affect aviation security and the ban is to raise public awareness. 

On the same day, the Department of Transport in Hanoi sent its document to the transport inspectorate asking to report its staff Dao Vinh Thuan, one of the two disruptive passengers, who assaulted the female employee in the airport. The report must be sent to the department before October 23.

Leaders of transport sector and Vietnam Airlines where the female employee works for also asked the CAVA and Noi Bai Airport Authority to have stern penalty on the two passengers to deter other from similar acts.
