A flight was diverted to Manchester Airport this morning (9 March) after developing a fault.
The Jet2 service from London Stansted was due to take holidaymakers to Antalya in Turkey but was forced to touch down at Manchester after take-off.
A Jet2 spokesman said:“Flight LS1465 from London Stansted to Antalya followed procedure and diverted to Manchester Airport this morning, due to a minor fault indication. The aircraft landed safely, and customers will be transferred onto a standby aircraft so that we can get them on their way to Antalya as soon as possible. We apologise to everyone onboard for any inconvenience caused.”
It is understood the flight diverted to Manchester as the airline had a standby aircraft there.
