Serious Incident: (1) AIRBUS A321-231, G-OZBS and (2) BOEING 737-8AS, EI-DPT, at Dublin Airport (EIDW), Ireland on 21May 2011: Report 2012-017
While a Boeing 737-800 was taking off on the active Runway (RWY) 16 at EIDW an Airbus A321 mistakenly taxied onto the latter part of the same runway. The Boeing 737-800, which had almost reached V1, immediately conducted a high-speed Rejected Take-Off (RTO) and stopped approximately 360 metres from the A321. There was no damage or injury.
As part of the on-going development of Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems at EIDW and subsequent to this Serious Incident, Advanced Surface Movements Guidance and Control System (ASMGCS) Level 2 was put into operation. In addition the associated Runway Incursion Monitoring and Conflict Alert System (RIMCAS) and Stop bar Violation Monitoring were implemented at EIDW in order to assist ATC in preventing a future occurrence of this nature. Additional procedures and a new runway incursion hot spot were also designated and published by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA).
