An ASL Airlines Ireland (former Air Contractors Ireland) Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A freighter, registration EI-GUL performing flight ABR-1RG from Prague (Czech Republic) to Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) with 2 crew, was taxiing for departure and had been told to hold short of runway 24, however, crossed the hold short line at 22:02L (21:02Z).

An ASL Airlines Belgium Boeing 737-400 freighter, registration OO-TNQ performing flight 3V-4091 from Brno to Prague (Czech Republic) was on final approach to Prague's runway 24 descending through about 450 feet AGL about 1.25nm before the runway threshold when tower noticed the ATR was crossing the hold short line and instructed the Boeing to go around. The Boeing went around, climbed to 4000 feet MSL, positioned for another approach to runway 24 and landed safely about 15 minutes later.

About 6 minutes after the go around the ATR departed runway 24 and arrived in Paris without further incident.

Prague's ATC confirmed the incident reporting the ATR of Irish carrier Air Contractors crossed the hold short line while taxiing to runway 24 due to a pilot error thus violating the runway protected zone. The controller therefore instructed the 737 on short final to go around. A report has been filed with Czechia's UZPLN (aircraft accident investigation).
