An Easyjet Switzerland Airbus A320-200, registration HB-JXK performing flight U2-1069 from Basel (Switzerland) to Bordeaux (France), was climbing out of Basel's runway 15 when the crew stopped the climb at 4000 feet due to a bird strike into the right hand engine (CFM56). The aircraft returned to Basel for a safe landing on runway 15 about 12 minutes after departure.
