Atlasjet flight grounded at Stansted Airport

9 November 2012

Atlasjet flight KK912 to Istanbul was grounded yesterday at Stansted Airport according to airport officials.

Further to the UK compensation judgement of last week which requires Atlasjet to pay compensation to 669 people, the plane was grounded at Stansted yesterday afternoon due to the outstanding settlement.  The plane, destined for Istanbul and then Ercan, was finally permitted to take off after 2.5 hours delay. The 669 claimants whose flight plans were disrupted by the bankruptcy of Cyprus Turkish Airways are still awaiting payment, however no further complications are expected, according to Hamza Saner, TRNC Public Works and Transportation Minister.
