Air Malta flight to Milan-Linate affected twice due to technical fault

Air Malta flight KM-624 from Malta-Milan Linate (opw Airbus A320-200, 9H-AEN) which departed on schedule at 0755lt had to return back to base after a mere 20 minutes when the plane registered a technical fault with its navigation system. 

After being serviced by the airline’s engineers, the aircraft departed again at 1020lt but returned back again as a precautionary measure since the technical issue was reported again. In both occasion, the aircraft landed normally back in Malta. At no point was the safety of the passengers compromised. (Source: Air Malta, flightradar24.com; maltatoday.com.mt, 21-Mar-2014)
