Flights disrupted as cow enters Ahmedabad airport

Flights disrupted as cow enters Ahmedabad airport

It is too common a sight to see diversion on Indian roads or traffic on the streets of India because an animal is standing right in the middle of the road, but this time around in two separate incidents in the country two flights had to be diverted because of a cow and a tractor, which were spotted near the airport runway. On Friday a lonely cow forced flights to be diverted from Ahmedabad airport when it strayed on its runway causing vast chaos and ruckus. But a buffalo is not, strictly speaking, a cow, and it was finally up to the Ahmedabad airport, traditionally associated more with avian intrusions, to host a cow on its runway. The cow was quite mad, and running around the operational area. The bovine moved slowly past the security at a cargo gate at the airport in India's state of Gujarat to ramble near the runway, sparking a rodeo chase with guards.

The Airports Authority of India confirmed the situation and said that the "cow entered through cargo side".

The Hindu reports that the incident occurred at around 3am local time, with Central Industrial Security Force guards and airport staff spending an hour and a half trying to contain the animal. "I have asked the airport director to inquire [sic] into it and submit a report". "We are in talks with the civic body which will keep their vehicles deployed near the airport to catch stray animals, especially cows", said an official.

Apparently, some cows made a decision to take a stroll at the runway of Ahmedabad airport and hence flights had to be rerouted to different locations.

Both flights were diverted to Mumbai and other flights were delayed.

The official data shows that there were more than thousand incidents of bird strikes and animal colliding with planes happened at various Indian airports in 2017.

The AAI director has requested a detailed reported from Admadabad Airport to determine whether the incident was the result of human error.
