Paphos Airport Dog on Runway

Paphos Airport Dog On Runway

There have been reports last week of a small incident where a dog was seen running around the Paphos airport grounds.

One flight at least had to be delayed for landing and told to circle until the actual runway was checked out by a car using high powered lights.

It is one of those incidents that must happen on a semi regular basis at airports across the world but you never really think about what action will be taken until the actual incident occurs.

Great to hear that the Paphos Airport staff took sensible precautions in not allowing the flight to land straight away as a startled dog could have been a serious safety concern for any landing plane.
