Ryanair Flight To Murcia Forced To Make Emergency Landing

Sat 8th Sep 2012
Ryanair Flight To Murcia Forced To Make Emergency Landing

Another Ryanair flight was forced to make an emergency landing in London last night whilst en route to Murcia in Spain.

Flight FR2322, Leeds UK to Murcia San Javier developed technical problems and subsequently diverted to London Stansted where it landed without further incident according to the online Spanish newspaper, La Verdad.

No passengers were injured in the incident, however the flight which should have taken little more than 3 hours took more than 8 hours, equivalent to a flight from London Heathrow to New York.

The extraordinary travel time was the result of the replacement aircraft having to fly via Bristol so as not to interfere with air traffic control.

To add insult to injury, the flight was unable to land at San Javier airport as the arrival time was well beyond the 22.30 closing time of the airport. Instead, the flight landed at El Altet, Alicante airport where passengers were bused to Murcia.

This incident is yet another blow to the Irish airline who in recent weeks have encountered numerous technical problems along with emergency landings and fuel shortage issues during flight.

Ryanair are already under threat of losing their operator licences and this latest incident will no doubt compound the problem further.

Ryanair will only act to change things when they are forced to do so in a Court of Law (and then they will only challenge things anyway) OR when the general public finally see sense and vote with their feet. Whilst passengers are happy to fly Ryanair they will probably just keep on getting away with it !

Where is this going to end ? Ryanair have their supporters aswell as their many detractors, and I agree that it is fair to get what you may for. That's fine when it means paying extra for luggage, priority borading etc... but surely saftey is basic requirement that each and every airline - regardless of budget or not - simply HAS TO offer ?
