KLM to reschedule 'bird hijacked' flight- Ghana Airport Company Limited

The Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) has announced that KLM Royal Dutch Airline will reschedule its aborted flight to Amsterdam as soon as possible.

This follows an incident involving an Amsterdam-bound KLM Royal Dutch Airline flight which had to abort takeoff via runway 21 at the Kotoka International Airport, due to a bird strike close to the windshield of the aircraft.

GACL contained this in a press statement issued immediately after the incident.

According to the GACL, it has a robust wildlife management system in place to take care of such incidents.

It stated that currently, investigations into the cause of the incident have begun.

Meanwhile, all passengers who were aboard that flight have been lodged at various hotels close to the airport awaiting rescheduling of the flight.

The company also took the opportunity to assure air travellers and the general public of its commitment to upholding the highest safety standards at the airport.
