Cape Town - A flight scheduled to carry 181 passengers from Cape Town to Johannesburg was suspended after an engine failure, Comair said on Wednesday.

This happened while the aircraft was preparing for take-off at Cape Town International Airport, said Comair CEO Erik Venter in a statement.

“The engine was shut down without further incident, as per standard operating procedures,” said Venter.

Kulula.com was working on re-accommodating all passengers of Flight MN104 to get them to their final destination.

A full investigation was expected to establish the cause of the engine failure. - Sapa
