An Khors Air Airbus A320-200 on behalf of Aviatrans, registration UR-CJO performing flight KI-4512 from Heraklion (Greece) to Kiev (Ukraine) with 162 people on board, was climbing out of Heraklion when the crew reported engine trouble and decided to return to Heraklion for a safe landing.

In July 2013 Ukraine's Ministry of Transport reported in their monthly bulletin, that crew received a "ENG1 COMPRESSOR VANE" message while climbing through 1500 feet. Following the message the crew heard a loud bang and the left engine's (V2500) exhaust gas temperature rose. The crew shut the engine down and returned to Heraklion. The investigation found that one of the fuel pumps had failed leading to incorrect operation of the stator vanes at the high pressure compressor.
