Accra, 11th September 2023 – The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) wishes to confirm that on Friday, September 8, 2023, Delta Airlines flight DL157 that departed Accra enroute to New York, United States of America with 215 passengers and 6 crew members had to make an emergency landing in Terceira Island, Portugal due to technical challenges.

While en-route to its final destination from Accra, the aircraft experienced some technical challenges and the flight crew as a precautionary measure made an emergency landing at Lajes Airport.

The 767-300ER aircraft landed safely, where all 215 passengers and crew on board disembarked and were put on another Delta Airlines flight to continue to New York after a long wait.

Bearing in mind that the incident did not occur in the Accra Flight Information Region or Ghana’s territory, the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority is currently liaising with Delta Airlines and other relevant authorities about the incident.

As the Regulator of air transport in Ghana, GCAA remains fully committed to ensuring public safety and security in the aviation industry.
