Transavia flight attempts to take off from taxiway

Amsterdam, Netherlands - On Sept. 6, the pilots of a Boeing 737-800 from Transavia with registration PH-HSJ attempted to take off from the taxiway.

The incident was revealed by a local news portal. The Transavia flight HV 1041 that was preparing to take off from Schipol International Airport for Chania, Greece was ordered by the tower to taxi in the northerly direction on taxiway Charlie for runway 18C before they were cleared for take-off.

But the pilots drove on taxiway Delta in the opposite direction and started the takeoff.

Air traffic control intervened immediately to stop the aircraft. The crew aborted the takeoff run and taxied back to the runway 18C for takeoff.
