Probe launched after vehicle on runway delays flight

Investigations are underway after an Emirates Airline flight had to abort take-off due to an unauthorised vehicle on the runway.

Passengers travelling on the flight from Cairo to Dubai were disembarked to safety and a replacement aircraft departed after an eight-hour delay.

Unexpected braking at high speed caused damage to the tyres.

“The authorities are investigating the incident, and we are cooperating fully,” the statement from the airline read.
