An Avianca Airbus A320-200, registration N599AV performing flight AV-9521 from Barranquilla to Bogota (Colombia), was accelerating for takeoff from Barranquilla when the left hand engine (CFM56) ingested a large bird, presumably a heron. The crew rejected takeoff at low speed, slowed the aircraft safely and taxied back to the gate.

The flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.

The airport complained that they can not get into control of migratory birds being attracted by large garbage dumps around the aerodrome despite the use of birds of prey as long as the garbage dumps exist.
