The Boeing 767-300 was accelerating on the runway with 254 passengers and travelling at 60 knots when a ''flaps indication'' led to the flight not being undertaken, according to the Aviation Herald.
''The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron,'' according to avherald.com, which carried the headline 'Incident: Ikar B763 at Phuket on Feb 18th 2015, rejected takeoff due to flaps indication.'
The aircraft was Ikar Airlines flight IK-2484 from Phuket, Thailand, to Irkutsk, Russia.
A delay of 8.40 hours occurred before the aircraft (registration VP-BOZ) eventually took off, the report said.
''The West Siberian Transport Prosecution Office reported the passengers were provided with drinks and hot food while waiting for the departure,'' the report said.
''The office is checking whether all regulations with respect to flight safety have been met.''
It's not clear whether the published report was based on information supplied from Phuket or from Russia.
Ikar Airlines was founded in 1993 and has six aircraft in its fleet, according to planespotters.net.
In 2013 it leased several civil aircraft from Nordwind Airlines and started flying charter flights for Russian tour operator Pegas Touristik, says Wikipedia.
