In August 2021, a rabbit caused the Boeing 737-800 with the registration 9A-LAB to be damaged at Bremen Airport. Now ETF Airways is demanding compensation of around one million euros from the airport.

The company stated, among other things, that the affected Boeing 737-800 could not be used for about a week and had to be equipped with a new CFM56-7B27. The amount of the damage is estimated at around one million euros. They now want to sue for the money at Bremen Airport.

According to his own statements, ETF boss Stjepan Bedic went on an exploration tour in the area of ​​Bremen Airport and claims to have discovered numerous rabbit burrows. The security staff are said to have denied the presence of the animals and turned him away. Subsequently, Bremen Airport is said to have declined liability for the incident.

Now ETF Airways wants to go to court and claim damages. How good or bad the prospects are is unclear, because there are no comparable cases in German judicature. Bremen Airport did not want to comment on the allegations made by the Croatian carrier.

    They are paying the airport to keep the runway safe. I wonder if the plane crashed, would they refuse the liability as well.
