The Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) has commenced investigations into the circumstances that caused the aborted take-off of a KLM flight from the Kotoka International Airport on Friday.
The GACL said the pilot of the flight reported a bird strike close to the windshield of the aircraft.
“The Rescue and Fire Fighting Service (RFFS) of GACL was at the scene immediately to provide emergency fire cover. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the parking bay, where passengers disembarked and were transported to various hotels around the airport,” it said.
The airports operator further said KLM has commenced processes to get passengers back to their final destinations as soon as possible.
“Management of Ghana Airports Company Limited wishes to assure the general public that it has a robust Wildlife Management System in place and remains committed to the highest safety standards at the airport,” the GACL said.
