A LOGANAIR flight from Sumburgh to Glasgow was diverted to Aberdeen on Monday afternoon after crew discovered a crack in the cockpit’s windscreen.
A spokesperson said the aircraft’s 34 passengers are due to be flown to Glasgow using a replacement plane.
“Flight LM436 was en-route to Glasgow when it made a precautionary diversion to Aberdeen after the crew detected a minor issue with the aircraft’s windscreen,” they said.
“The aircraft landed safely and was met by emergency services as per procedure when a PAN call is declared, although their assistance was not required.
“Loganair will transport the 34 passengers to their original destination using a replacement aircraft and apologises for the inconvenience to their journeys.”
The diversion comes a week after a Loganair plane had to return to Sumburgh after striking a bird.
