TAP sends parts to Porto Santo

Latest plane used for transport

A TAP plane with parts for an aircraft that suffered a ‘bird strike’ on 12 August landed at Porto Santo Airport shortly before 11:00 am yesterday.

The aircraft (an A321 from Lisbon bound for Funchal) was forced to diverge to Ilha Dourada, after a bird entered the plane’s reactor. To transport the equipment needed to repair the damaged aircraft, TAP used its latest device, the A330-900neo.

The plane made the IATA summer’s weekly Saturday trip bringing, in addition to parts, many scheduled passengers. Company technicians, who will repair the damaged plane, are already in Porto Santo.
