Gujarat: Cow enters Ahmedabad runway, temporarily disrupts flight operations

An global flight and a cargo plane were diverted to Mumbai for landing instead of Ahmedabad on account of the incident. In Hinduism, the cow is considered a sacred animal and therefore is allowed to roam free throughout the country. Now, it seems, they're disrupting larger vehicles than simply cars.

A flight from Abu Dhabi and a cargo plane had to abort landing and fly on to Mumbai early on Thursday morning when their pilots spotted a cow running amok near the runway of the Sardar Vallabhbhai International Airport in Ahmedabad, according to sources. Due to the incident, the arrival of 5 domestic flights and several departures were also delayed.

The Airports Authority of India confirmed the situation and said that the "cow entered through cargo side". "But it was controlled soon", he said.

In this photograph taken September 1, 2017 a worker sits next to cows at a British-era dairy farm opened in 1889 that is now run by the Indian military in Allahabad.

"A big drama followed after the cow was spotted inside the airport". But a buffalo is not, strictly speaking, a cow, and it was finally up to the Ahmedabad airport, traditionally associated more with avian intrusions, to host a cow on its runway.

An AAI spokesperson said, "The AAI chairman has sought a detailed report from the Airport Director (APD), Ahmedabad Airport, on the incident". The bovine moved slowly past the security at a cargo gate at the airport in India's state of Gujarat to ramble near the runway, sparking a rodeo chase with guards. According to official data, there were more than 1,000 incidents where animals and birds collided into planes at airports throughout the country past year.
