Vietnam's private airline Air Mekong canceled a flight from Ho Chi Minh City to the southern island of Phu Quoc this week after the plane's cockpit glass cracked during the flight, Tuoi Tre reported Saturday.

According to the newspaper, the incident, which happened to a Bombardier airplane on Thursday, prompted pilots to fly back to the city and have the glass replaced.

It quoted a carrier representative as saying that the repair was finished later the same day and that the plane resumed operations the next day.

More details about the incident have not been released.

Air Mekong currently operates domestic flights between HCMC and tourism destinations like the Central Highlands resort town of Da Lat with four CRJ-900 aircraft produced by the Canada-headquartered Bombardier.
