A bird strike to one of our aircraft has resulted in a delay to the following flights:
WO 312 Abbotsford (YXX) to Edmonton (YEG) – Recovery Flight 2312 has been delayed to 11-Sep-19 at 12:15 a.m. LT
Swoop can confirm flight WO 312 from Abbotsford to Edmonton reported a bird strike shortly after departure this morning. The aircraft landed safely in Abbotsford shortly after takeoff and all travellers were offloaded without incident.
Maintenance engineers have determined the aircraft will require further repairs before it will be returned to service. We are positioning another aircraft to operate the recovery flight WO 2312 from Abbotsford to Edmonton, which is now scheduled to depart Abbotsford at 12:15 am local time. Should the new flight time not be suitable for impacted travellers, they can cancel for a full refund of the unused portion of their ticket at https://www.flyswoop.com/manage-my-bookings/.
Safety is our number one priority and will always be at the forefront of our decision making. Thank you to our captain, first officer and cabin crew for ensuring the safety of our travellers. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.
