IMHO it is probably a medical diversion, because this morning OOSNN is flying again, to Nice.

But I shall ask Brussels Airlines for an explanation.

Strange, though; they were close to Vienna!

You probably mean it could have been anything except medical! Medical emergencies divert to the nearest suitable airport, which most of the time isn’t home base. A diversion to home base is often caused by a minor technical problem which can’t be fixed at destination.

An aircraft that has a minor technical glitch doesn’t need to remain on the ground for ages.

And if a diversion is required for medical assistance, you land ASAP. Very obviously.

Maaike Andries, a spokeswoman for Brussels Airlines, provided Aviation24.be with the following explanation:

"Due to technical findings after take-off, which did not endanger the flight at any time, yet for which there were no spare parts available in Yerevan, the flight to EVN returned to Brussels. Hence also the return flight was cancelled and all passengers from both flights were rebooked to the best available alternatives."
