A Swiss Airbus A320-200, registration HB-IJS performing flight LX-521 from Nice (France) to Geneva (Switzerland) with 146 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Nice's runway 04R.

At the same time a THY Turkish Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration TC-JHN performing flight TK-1813 from Istanbul (Turkey) to Nice (France), was on final approach to runway 04L but went around from low height (about 375 feet AGL) prompting tower to instruct LX-521 to stop.

The crew of LX-521 rejected takeoff at low speed (about 75 KIAS), slowed the aircraft safely, returned to the holding point runway 04R and departed about 7 minutes after rejecting takeoff.

A passenger reported the crew announced they had rejected takeoff at about 75 knots on ATC instruction due to an aircraft going around on the parallel runway.
