An AZAL Azerbaijan Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration 4K-AZ79 performing flight J2-125 from Baku (Azerbaijan) to Antalya (Turkey) with 142 passengers, was accelerating for takeoff from Baku's runway 34 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (more than 122 knots over ground) after the left hand engine (CFM56) ingested a bird. The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron.

A replacement A320-200 registration 4K-AZ83 reached Antalya with a delay of 2.5 hours.

The airline reported the captain decided to not rotate for takeoff due to vibrations of the left hand engine. A later examination found evidence of a bird strike. A replacement aircraft took the 142 passengers to Antalya.
