British Airways flight lands in Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf by mistake

London: A British Airways flight destined for Dusseldorf in Germany landed in the Scotish capital Edinburgh by mistake, after the flight paperwork was submitted incorrectly, a media report said on Monday.

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

The flight has now been redirected and landed in Dusseldorf, BA says. German firm WDL Aviation ran the flight for BA as part of a leasing deal, the BBC reported.

BA said it was working with WDL to find out why it filed the wrong flight plan.

“We have apologised to customers for this interruption to their journey and will be contacting them all individually,” BA said in a statement.

The airline declined to say how many passengers were affected by the mistake.
