Close call between 2 planes at New York’s JFK airport under investigation, FAA says


The Federal Aviation Administration said it was launching an investigation into how a commercial airliner taxied past a flight taking off from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on Friday night.

The crew of a Delta Air Lines Boeing 737 aborted their takeoff, eventually coming to rest within 1,000 feet of the American Airlines Boeing 777 on the ground, the FAA said. No one was injured in the incident, which happened around 8:45 p.m. Friday.

Air traffic controllers had “noticed another aircraft crossing the runway in front of the departing airliner,” the FAA said in a statement. “According to a preliminary analysis, Delta Air Lines Flight 1943 stopped its takeoff roll at approximately 1,000 feet before reaching the point where American Airlines Flight 106, a Boeing 777, had crossed from a taxiway. adjacent.”

According to Delta, its flight – a 737-900 to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic – had 145 customers and six crew members on board.

Audio recordings detail the quick action of an air traffic controller who prevented the planes from colliding as they approached.

“St!” exclaimed the tower controller at John F. Kennedy International Airport Friday night. “Delta 1943 cancels take-off clearance!”

The flight returned to the gate and was unable to depart due to staffing issues, Delta said. The flight finally departed on Saturday morning and Delta said it was offering customers a hotel stay.

“The safety of our customers and our crew is always Delta’s number one priority,” Delta said in a statement to CNN, adding that it would cooperate with the National Transportation Safety Board in any analysis.

“Delta will work with and assist the NTSB on a full review of Flight 1943 on January 13 regarding an aborted takeoff procedure at New York-JFK. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay to their travels.

The NTSB announced the Twitter that he was investigating the incident.

“The NTSB is investigating the January 13 runway incursion at JFK Airport involving an American Airlines Boeing 777 and a Delta Boeing 737,” it said.

American Airlines had no comment, referring all questions to the FAA. FlightAware data shows American Airlines Flight 106 was a London Heathrow-bound flight that departed on time Friday night from JFK and arrived in London on time Saturday morning.
