A Brussels Airlines flight from Ljubljana rejected a takeoff earlier this week following an issue with it’s onboard computer.
Computer Issue: Brussels Flight From Ljubljana Rejects Takeoff
Brussels Airlines flight SN3344 is a routine flight between Ljubljana and Brussels, and was operated by OO-SSL, one of the airline’s Airbus A319 aircraft.
As per data from Planespotters.net, OO-SSL is a 21.1 year old airframe that started out life with Frontier Airlines back in September 2002 as N912FR.
N912FR remained in the Frontier fleet until February 2016, when it was returned to lessor GECAS. By April of that year, it was handed over to Brussels Airlines.
The airline currently has a fleet of 16 Airbus A319-100 aircraft, of which all of them are in current service and not parked up.
As per information from The Aviation Herald, Brussels Airlines flight SN3344 was on the take-off roll when it rejected the departure due to an issue with a computer that needed resetting.
From there, once the computer had been reset, the aircraft taxied back out to the runway and later departed successfully from Ljubljana with a delay of around 45 minutes.
Despite this issue, OO-SSL has been flying for Brussels Airlines just fine, having completed well over 20 sectors since this incident arose.
It was probably also something that could be sorted very quickly upon arrival into the Belgian capital by maintenance technicians to ensure that the same issue didn’t happen again.
Whilst a minor issue, safety is of the utmost priority to the airline.
