Technical Problems Force Passenger Plane to Abort Flight at Munich Airport

Incident at Munich Airport: Shortly after take-off, a passenger plane has to abort the flight – due to technical problems at an altitude of around 4,000 meters.

A Cityjet passenger plane had to abort its flight at an altitude of around 4,000 meters after taking off from Munich Airport on Friday. This is reported by The Aviation Herald, an English-language website that specializes in reporting on safety-related events in commercial aviation.

Canadair flight LH-2264 was said to fly on behalf of Lufthansa at 3:20 p.m. on Friday from Munich to Marseille. According to “flightstats.com”, the flight with 59 people on board took off with a slight delay at 3.45 p.m.

However, shortly after takeoff, the aircraft’s systems apparently reported “problems with various systems” affecting, among other things, slats, landing flaps, control surfaces and navigation, as “The Aviation Herald” writes. The Canadair crew of the Cityjet CRJ-1000 decided to abort the takeoff and return to Munich.

Munich: Replacement aircraft brings passengers to Marseille

There, the pilots requested that the entire runway be cleared. The plane finally landed safely at Franz Josef Strauss Airport at a slightly higher speed than normal.

The Cityjet machine was then examined by emergency responders for external damage. However, the visual inspection of the aircraft did not provide any indication of damage or defects, as the website reports. The aircraft was then towed to the apron. After four hours of investigation, regular service with the Cityjet CRJ-1000 could be resumed.

In the meantime, the 59 passengers were able to continue their journey with a replacement aircraft. With a delay of around 2.45 hours, the Lufthansa Airbus A319-100 finally reached its destination in Marseille safely.
