An Iberia Airbus A320-200, registration EC-LVD performing flight IB-3147 from Prague (Czech Republic) to Madrid,SP (Spain), was cleared for immediate takeoff from Prague's runway 24, landing traffic on a 3nm final.

A Tailwind Boeing 737-400, registration TC-TLA performing flight TI-147 from Antalya (Turkey) to Prague (Czech Republic), was on final approach to Prague's runway 24 about 3nm before touchdown when IB-3147 was cleared for takeoff.

The Iberia crew immediately acknowledged "Rolling", the aircraft accelerated to about 40 knots over ground about 25 seconds after receiving the takeoff clearance, when tower instructed "Iberia 3147, stop immediately, Iberia 3147 stop immediately". After the crew acknowledged the instruction tower instructed the Tailwind Boeing 737-400 to go around, the crew acknowledged and went around.

The A320 vacated the runway via taxiway C (first turn off about 1400 meters down the runway) and returned to the holding point runway 24. The aircraft departed runway 24 about 16 minutes after the rejected takeoff and reached Madrid with a delay of 40 minutes.

The B734 positioned for another approach to runway 24 and landed safely about 17 minutes after going around.

A passenger on board the A320 reported the captain announced they needed to reject takeoff on ATC instruction due to problems with the traffic around.
