A Ryanair flight from Paphos to Krakow in Poland was delayed on Sunday morning after a flock of birds flew into the engine.

The flight was due to leave at 7.15am when the birds hit and the flight was delayed. A second attempt to take off at 10.15am also failed as it appeared the birds had damaged the engine.

According to CNA, passengers had remained on board for the three-hour wait but after the second attempt failed, they were returned to the airport to await another plane that was to be flown in from Thessaloniki.

The aircraft arrived early afternoon, according to the report. Paphos airport flight information indicated around 2pm that the flight was boarding.
