A British Airways flight destined for Dusseldorf in Germany has landed in Edinburgh by mistake, after the flight paperwork was submitted incorrectly.

The passengers solely realised the error when the airplane landed and the “welcome to Edinburgh” announcement was made.

The flight is now making its method from Edinburgh to Dusseldorf, BA says. German agency WDL Aviation ran the flight for BA as a part of a leasing deal.

BA mentioned it was working with WDL to search out out why it filed the incorrect flight plan.

“Now we have apologised to clients for this interruption to their journey and will probably be contacting all of them individually,” BA mentioned in an announcement.

It isn’t but recognized what number of passengers have been affected by the error.

BA say the pilot wasn’t misplaced at any level, however as a result of the paperwork mentioned Edinburgh, air visitors management allowed the flight to take that route.
