Oman Air stuck in the mud in Paris

Oman Air Flight WY131 found itself stuck in the mud at Paris Charles De Gaulle last Thursday, causing a delay to the service.

The incident occurred while the Airbus A330-300 was taxiing from the runway to its stand after landing.

The carrier issued a statement saying it was a “minor incident” and that “early reports indicate that part of the aircraft’s landing gear became stuck in grass and mud”.

“It was subsequently towed to the stand, where it was inspected for damage and cleared for flight,” the statement continued.

The aircraft then departed at 01.10 on the ensuing Friday morning.

“No passengers or crew were hurt during the incident, nor were they at risk at any time,” the carrier said.

“The aircraft’s captain thanked passengers for their patience and calm.”

The incident is being investigated by Oman Air’s management and the carrier praised the “calm professionalism of the highly trained pilots aboard Flight WY131, whose quick thinking averted any significant damage”.

The airline also expressed regret at the inconvenience caused by the late departure.
