Avianca A320 at Pasto on Oct 27th 2020, hard landing and go around
Last Update: October 30, 2020 / 08:34:35 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger video shows the aircraft experienced a hard touchdown on runway 20 and went around.
The aircraft departed for the return flight AV-8598 on schedule, landed in Bogota and even flew another sector AV-9546 to Cartagena (Colombia) before damage was discovered to the aircraft. The aircraft remained on the ground in Cartagena for about 38 hours before returning to service.
According to NOTAMs the runway is closed daily between 19:00Z to 11:00Z starting Sep 9th 2020 and estimated until December 8th 2020, probably for runway repair works. At the time of the occurrence the runway was officially open according to the NOTAMs.
Local sources report the asphalt surface of runway 02/20 at Pasto is crumbling and detaching (see also the event the following day, Accident: Avianca A320 at Pasto on Oct 28th 2020, runway strikes back).
