A Yemenia Airbus A310-300, registration 7O-ADR performing flight IY-609 from Cairo (Egypt) to Aden (Yemen), was climbing out of Cairo's runway 05L when the crew stopped the climb at about 4000 feet due to a problem with one of the engines (PW4156) and decided to return to Cairo. The aircraft landed on Cairo's runway 05R about 12 minutes after departure but blew both right hand forward main tyres and became disabled on the runway. The passengers disembarked via mobile stairs.

A replacement A320-200 registration 7O-AFC was dispatched to Cairo, resumed the flight about 10 hours after landing back, climbed to FL330 and was enroute at FL330 about 210nm southeast of Cairo when the crew decided to return to Cairo. The aircraft burned off fuel at FL090 and landed safely back about 2:20 hours after departure.

7O-AFC now remained on the ground in Cairo for about 14.5 hours, then departed again and reached Aden.

Passengers reported they returned to Cairo several times. On first departure there was a problem with an engine prompting the return, the passengers believe one of the engines was shut down. On the second departure a medical emergency of a special person on board prompted the return.

Media in Yemen partly claim the occurrence aircraft returned due to a medical emergency, others claim the occurrence aircraft returned due to a technical defect.

The occurrence A310 is still on the ground in Cairo about 35 hours after landing back.
