Vistara A20N and Vistara A20N at Delhi on Aug 23rd 2023, ATC operational error forces rejected takeoff
Last Update: August 23, 2023 / 22:05:51 GMT/Zulu time
A Vistara Airbus A320-200N, registration VT-TNC performing flight UK-926 from Ahmedabad to Delhi (India), had landed on runway 29L and was cleared to cross runway 29R at about the same time when UK-725 was cleared for takeoff.
When UK-926 crossed the hold short line tower realized the loss of separation on the runway and instructed UK-725 to abort takeoff. The crew complied and rejected takeoff at speed above 62 knots over ground.
UK-926 continued taxi to the apron, UK-725 returned to the apron.
UK-725, VT-TYA, was able to depart 3:45 hours after the rejected takeoff and reached Bagdogra with a delay of about 3:40 hours.
India's DGCA confirmed both aircraft had been cleared at the same time, however, the controller took immediate action. He had momentarily forgotten about the crossing clearance when he cleared the takeoff. An investigation has been opened.
