Brussels Airlines has cancelled all flights to Liberia over a malfunctioning navigation system at the main airport in Liberia’s capital, Monrovia.
“It is of the utmost importance that we operate each and every flight in a safe, secure and compliant manner,” the Belgium-based airline said in a statement.
It said all passengers affected by the cancellations will be contacted.
The airline urged the management of Monrovia’s Roberts International Airport to comply with safety regulations “as soon as possible”.
The airline was the only Western airline flying directly to Liberia.
In April, one of its planes nearly crash-landed at the Monrovia airport due to a power outage on the runway.
