Air Malta has said that its flight KM328 from Malta to Frankfurt was involved in a bird strike incident on Saturday. The aircraft landed normally at its destination.

An Air Malta spokesperson said that standard procedure entails that the aircraft is checked after the flight. The inspection by engineers found that the aircraft required maintenance and was not in a position to operate the return sector to Malta (KM 329). The Malta bound passengers were offered hotel accommodation.

To minimise inconvenience as much as possible, on Sunday morning Air Malta sent a relief aircraft to Frankfurt. No major flights delays for today are expected as a consequence of this incident.

The spokesman said that Air Malta gave utmost importance to the safety and well-being of its clients and crew and apologised to its clients for any inconvenience caused by circumstances beyond its control.
