Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

A FLIGHT bound for Glas­gow was di­verted to a north-east air­port af­ter crew de­tected a mi­nor is­sue with the air­craft’s wind­screen. The Lo­ganair LM436 flight from Sum­burgh landed at Aberdeen In­ter­na­tional Air­port in Dyce, and was met by emer­gency ser­vices as a pre­cau­tion, just af­ter 3pm yes­ter­day. A spokesman for Lo­ganair said: “Flight LM436 was en route to Glas­gow when it made a pre­cau­tion­ary di­ver­sion to Aberdeen af­ter the crew de­tected a mi­nor is­sue with the air­craft’s wind­screen. “The air­craft landed safely and was met by emer­gency ser­vices as per pro­ce­dure when a PAN call is de­clared, although their as­sis­tance was not re­quired.” The spokesman said Lo­ganair planned to trans­port the 34 pas­sen­gers to Glas­gow us­ing a re­place­ment air­craft. He apol­o­gised for the in­con­ve­nience to their jour­ney. A Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice spokes­woman said: “We acted on standby to as­sist an air­craft com­ing in to land. “The air­craft landed safely and our ser­vices were not re­quired.” An Aberdeen In­ter­na­tional Air­port spokes­woman con­firmed the air­craft was forced to take a pre­cau­tion­ary di­ver­sion.
