"There was a collision with birds from a flight from Lisbon to Terceira (an island of Azores) during the landing," said the spokesman, adding that "the aircraft has been being watched by maintenance services yesterday to assess the severity of the damage."

The spokesman said that all the passengers affected were transported with another flight.
