Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The aircraft was parked at stand 10 of the Seville Airport. It had started up its engines and the crew had requested taxi clearance. A flight dispatcher was coordinating the operation from the apron.
Meanwhile, a group of passengers was being led by two operators to board another aircraft of the same airline located at stand 11. The access to the aircraft was through a walkway on the apron protected by jet blast barriers. This walkway had areas that lacked barriers so as to allow the passengers to access the parked aircraft.
When the aircraft started its engines and taxied, the boarding to the second aircraft was interrupted. The passengers remained behind the jet blast barriers at point 2, but the jet blast from the aircraft impacted some passengers, throwing them to the ground, as a result of which one passenger fractured an arm.
