Narrative:
TUI Airways flight BY2609, an Airbus A330-223 leased from AELF FlightService, had just arrived at the gate when fire services doused the area of the no.2 engine/right hand main gear.

TUI apologised to customers and said the safety of its passengers and crew "always remains its highest priority". A spokesperson for the airline said: “We can confirm flight TOM2609 Mahon to Manchester airport experienced a technical fault on arrival to the stand and was met by the fire service.

"The safety of our passengers and crew was not compromised and always remains our highest priority. The aircraft was completely safe to land, and all passengers have been disembarked. Any customers who may experience a delay due to this will be contacted to advise them of any changes.

"We understand how unsettling it can be when an aircraft is met by emergency services so we will continue to offer our full support. We'd like to apologise to all customers for the inconvenience and thank them for their patience and understanding at this time.”
