Transavia Boeing 737-800 wants to take off on a taxiway, prevented by air traffic control
On 6 September, a Transavia Boeing 737-800 (PH-HSJ) operated flight HV 1041 between Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Chania, Greece. The aircraft taxied in northerly direction on taxiway Charlie to runway 18C at Schiphol when it received take-off clearance for runway 18C.
The crew then drove on taxiway Delta in a southerly direction and commenced the takeoff. Air traffic control noticed this and instructed the crew to stop immediately. The crew aborted the takeoff run and taxied back to the beginning of runway 18C, after which the aircraft took off uneventfully.
