One Flight - Two Emergency Landings Investigated

Mon 12th Sep 2011

A Ryanair flight from Catalonia's Girona airport, on route to Stansted was forced to make two separate emergency landings on the same journey after fumes entered the rear of the cabin in mid-flight.

The Irish Aviation Authority confirmed that they are investigating the incident, which took place on 30th August.

The Plane first landed at Nantes, where local engineers and safety officers were unable to find the source of the fumes. The plane was subsequently released for it's onward journey, when shortly afterwards the same problem re-occurred, and the plane was forced to land for a second time at Gatwick airport.

Passengers were then relayed by coach to Stansted airport.

The source of the fumes was subsequently found to be a faulty oven, which was replaced, while passengers were offered an apology and a £75 travel credit the next day.

An unnamed ex-pilot of the airline told the Sunday Express Newspaper criticised Ryanair's "cavalier" attitude to safety, something which the airline has refuted.
