“A technical issue forced the crew to head back,” spokeswoman Maaike Andries said to, “the aircraft was safe to continue to Dakar, but it would take longer to fix the problem at the Senegalese airport hence the decision was made. At Brussels Airport, we have our maintenance facilities.”

Meanwhile, the aircraft safely landed back at Brussels Airport. Passengers have been rebooked onto the next available flight, if required the airline provided hotel accommodation. Only a few days ago, OO-SFU to Kigali headed back to Brussels.
