Probe launched after vehicle on runway delays flight
Investigations are underway after an Emirates Airline flight had to abort take-off due to an unauthorised vehicle on the runway.
Passengers travelling on the flight from Cairo to Dubai were disembarked to safety and a replacement aircraft departed after an eight-hour delay.
Unexpected braking at high speed caused damage to the tyres.
“The authorities are investigating the incident, and we are cooperating fully,” the statement from the airline read.
