Easyjet A319 at Murcia on Mar 27th 2018, rejected takeoff due to bird strikes into both engines
Last Update: December 26, 2019 / 15:59:15 GMT/Zulu time
The airport reported the aircraft had already entered the runway but had not yet commenced takeoff when the crew reported a right hand engine fire indication after a number of sea gulls had been ingested.
The airline reported the passengers disembarked normally and returned to the terminal.
Spain's CIAIAC have opened an investigation into the occurrence.
A replacement A320-200 registration G-EZWV reached London with a delay of 5 hours.
On Apr 5th 2018 the CIAIAC reported the aircraft was accelerating for takeoff when both engines ingested birds causing high vibrations. The crew rejected takeoff below V1 and stopped on the runway. The aircraft sustained substantial damage limited to the engines. The aircraft was towed off the runway about 90 minutes after the rejected takeoff. The occurrence was rated an accident and is being investigated by the CIAIAC.
In December 2019 the CIAIAC reported a final report has been approved, however, "taking into account the characteristics of the treatment of information in the military field and the obligations of information to the parties in the civil field, it has been agreed that the publication and public dissemination of the Final Report be restricted."
