An Austrian Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration OE-LBS performing flight OS-9404 from Catania to Palermo (Italy), was accelerating for takeoff from Catania's runway 08 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (about 130 knots over ground) due to a abnormal engine indication. The aircraft slowed safely and stopped on the runway. Emergency services responded and checked the brakes. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron.

Catania Airport reported a technical problem triggered emergency procedures, the crew rejected takeoff and stopped the aircraft on the runway. Emergency services were requested, who checked the aircraft and declared the area safe. The aircraft was towed to the apron, where passengers disembarked normally. One arriving flight needed to be diverted due to the occupied runway.

The airline reported a warning indication for an engine prompted the crew to reject takeoff. Emergency services responded but did not need to intervene. As a safety precaution the aircraft was towed to the apron. Technicians checked the aircraft and released it back to service later the day.
