After a BIRD strike, a Ryanair flight heading for Lanzarote returns at Manchester Airport.
After colliding with a bird, a RYANAIR flight heading for Lanzarote had to return to Manchester Airport.
According to the website Flight Aware, the Ryanair FR2131 flight departing at 7:50 a.m. is suffering delays of 25 minutes on average “and growing.” Despite the fact that it was supposed to land in Lanzarote, the website said that it landed at Liverpool John Lennon Airport at 9:23 a.m.
A bird flying into the plane’s engine, according to social media sources and flight trackers, caused the delay.
The FR2131 flight’s “engines sounded pretty harsh” on takeoff, according to one Twitter user.
According to two stories, the louder engines were caused by a “bird strike on takeoff.”
“This flight from Manchester to Lanzarote (13th Oct) was diverted to Liverpool airport following a small bird strike,” Ryanair confirmed in a statement to This website.
“The plane landed normally, and clients were moved to a replacement plane, which took off for Lanzarote after a little delay of about an hour.”
“Ryanair apologized profusely to all customers who were inconvenienced.”
