The aircraft left for Holguin in Cuba a short while after midday on Monday.


But then, it had to return to Manchester Airport just after 3 p.m. The plane was thought to have had 322 passengers on board. It was observed with the tip of its left wing missing following its emergency landing at the airport of Manchester.


A spokesman for Thomas Cook told the media that the plane had been a victim of ‘suspected technical fault’ mid-air and therefore had to return.


However, the airline said that the wing was actually not related to the alert. They added that the missing portion of a wing does not impact the plane’s ability to continue flying.


In its official statement the airline said that the flight MT2652 of Thomas Cook that was travelling to Holguin had to return to Manchester as a precautionary measure after a low oil indication that is not related to the wing.


The airline mentioned that safety is an important concern for it and that it would be undergoing a complete safety check prior to returning to service.


And, it issued an official apology for causing inconvenience to its passengers.  Thomas Cook also said that it had arranged for overnight accommodation for the passengers and meanwhile the aircraft was undergoing maintenance work.
