After the safe landing, the crew and passengers waited for 9 hours until technical issues were resolved.

It was the second time the state-owned airplane had technical issues that resulted in the grounding of a plane carrying the prince, officials said. On Nov. 24, Felipe missed a political conference in Brazil after a midair wing-flap malfunction forced an emergency landing.
