A Vietnam Airlines jet with 307 people on board made an emergency landing at the main airport in Azerbaijan's capital, Baku, airport officials said. Nobody was hurt.

An airport official who declined to give his name said the Boeing-777 was en route from Paris to Hanoi when the crew decided to land because of a cracked windshield - the third time in less than two weeks that officials in Azerbaijan have cited a cracked windshield as the reason for an emergency landing at Baku's international airport.

There were 290 passengers and 17 crew members aboard the plane, the official said.

An Air Slovakia Boeing 757 on a flight from India to Slovakia made an emergency landing at the airport on Jan. 5, and a Russian Tu-134 made an emergency landing there last week.
