Vueling A320 at La Coruna on Oct 15th 2023, go around due to aircraft still on the runway
Last Update: October 19, 2023 / 17:21:17 GMT/Zulu time
Another Vueling Airbus A320-200, registration EC-MLE performing flight VY-6018 from London Gatwick,EN (UK) to La Coruna,SP (Spain), was on short final to runway 21 and went around.
A listener on frequency reported that tower had issued a landing clearance to the arriving VY-6018, did not react, did not instruct a go around or comment the occurrence in any way. The departing crew however apologized stating that after lining up (already being cleared for takeoff) they needed more time than usual to get the aircraft ready for departure.
The information was contested stating that VY-6018 had not received landing clearance and was instructed to go around by tower.
The arriving crew told their passengers that they had to go around due to an aircraft on the runway.
On Oct 19th 2023 in the evening The Aviation Herald finally received reply from Spain's CIAIAC stating: "We confirm CIAIAC has not opened a safety investigation on this event."
