The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) says it is liaising with Delta Airlines and other relevant authorities about last Friday’s incident involving a flight from Accra to New York.
The aircraft is said to have experienced some technical challenges, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing in Terceira Island, Portugal.
The aircraft was carrying about 215 passengers.
Both crew and passengers suffered the inconvenience of waiting for quite long at Lajes Airport, 3news.com gathered, but were successfully put on another Delta Airlines flight “to continue to New York after a long wait”.
“Bearing in mind that the incident did not occur in the Accra Flight Information Region or Ghana’s territory, the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority is currently liaising with Delta Airlines and other relevant authorities about the incident,” GCAA said in a release on Monday, September 11.
“As the regulator of air transport in Ghana, GCAA remains fully committed to ensuring public safety and security in the aviation industry,” it assured.
