Technical problem forces Air Malta flight to London-Heathrow to return to Malta IAP

Air Malta flight AMC102 to London-Heathrow was forced to return back to Malta IAP this evening because of a technical problem. The flight (operated by an Airbus A320, registration 9H-AEP) took-off from Malta IAP around 1705LT and the problem was soon detected by crew. The crew had no option but to turn the aircraft back to Malta. The aircraft landed safely at Malta IAP around 30-mins after departure. Following an aircraft change, flight AMC102 took-off again (opb A320, 9H-AEO) with a two hour delay.
