Plane returned to Paris due to denied landing in Greece

The plane of Dutch airline Transavia, which flew from Paris to Greek Santorini, returned to the French capital. On Sunday, July 11, it was reported by a representative of the Paris branch of the airline.

“The plane of flight TO3558 departed normally from Paris at 16:50. However, it is now returning due to the refusal of the Greek airport to accept it. There is no question of any technical malfunction on board,” the airline said.

The agency interlocutor clarified that the return of the liner was due to the refusal of the airport of the Greek island of Santorini to receive it. The Boeing 737 was denied landing due to technical reasons.

The plane was diverted to the city of departure, evidenced by the Flightradar24 tracking portal. Thus, the plane turned around near the French commune of Tournus. On its return it made three circles near the municipality of Fosua.

In early July, a passenger plane of the Russian airline IrAero, heading from Blagoveshchensk to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, was forced to land at the airport of departure. As it became known, the return of the plane for technical reasons was announced at the 36th minute of the flight.
