Second aircraft of Albanian Airlines reports technical problems.

By bne IntelliNews January 21, 2010
A few days after the flight operated by national flag carrier Albanian Airlines to Bologna which landed unexpectedly in Bratislava , another aircraft of the company made an emergency landing on Wednesday. The plane operating the Tirana-Tourin line took off in Tirana but soon landed again on the airport in the Albanian capital. The company officially confirmed that the reason was a technical problem. The same explanation was given to the case with the flight to Bologna , which deviated from its course and landed unexpectedly in Bratislava on Sunday last week. However, flight passengers claimed that this was a form of protest of the Slovak pilots of the aircraft due to unpaid salaries. Slovak aviation authority launched investigation on this accident. We note that Albanian Airlines signed a lease agreement with Air Slovakia last November. Under the contract the local carrier hired five aircrafts on an ACMI basis (aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance).
