A bird strike is suspected with the aircraft of Jazeera Airways that met with a disturbance while landing at the Gautam Buddha International Airport.

A bird may have collided with the aircraft at 1:45 am on Monday, said Prabesh Adhikari, chief of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) at the airport. As a result, at present, the aircraft has been grounded at the airport with the rescheduling of its flights, he said. "The plane has successfully landed. Bird strike is suspected as blood droplets can be seen on the surface of the plane. However, the dead bird has not been found. A technical team will check whether it has been sucked into the engine." Further investigations were underway, he said.

The airline has managed accommodation for its passengers in a hotel. Thirty-eight passengers had booked tickets for the Bhairahawa-Kuwait flight, according to the airport authorities.
