A flight bound for Aberdeen has been turned around this morning after an “instrument issue”.
The KLM flight, from Amsterdam to Aberdeen, was originally scheduled to land in the Granite City before 9am.
Pilots on the flight decided to return to Schiphol as a precaution after a discovering an issue with an instrument on board.
The aircraft will now arrive in Aberdeen at 11.30am.
It is understood that due to there being no engineers based in Aberdeen the decision was made to return to Amsterdam to avoid waiting for an engineer coming over on the next flight.
A spokesman for KLM said: “The aircraft returned from airborne after 30 minutes due to technical reasons.
“The aircraft will be changed in Amsterdam with an expected delay of approximately two hours.
“Customers were informed about the situation by the crew and passenger safety was never at stake.”
