(CNS) UPDATED: The runway at Charles Kirkconnell International Airport (CKIA) on Cayman Brac was closed Thursday morning after a private aircraft aborted a take-off. Officials from the Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA) said the incident happened around 11:40am, and while the take-off was stopped safely, with no reported injuries, the cause has not yet been determined.

“Airport personnel are on scene and currently working to resolve the issues surrounding the incident. Runway operations at CKIA have been suspended until further notice,” officials said in a press release circulated at around 2pm, adding that more information would be released later.

Cayman Airways Ltd cancelled all of its Cayman Airways Express flights between Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac but officials stated that it will add an extra flight Friday to help rebook passengers.

It is still not clear when the immobile aircraft will be removed from the runway.
