jet2On Sunday, an aircraft of Jet2 was forced to make an emergency landing after the cabin pressure inside the plane dropped dangerously.

 

The incident prompted the authorities to ensure that oxygen masks were released so that the passengers of the flight were not uncomfortable following the decrease in the cabin pressure.

 

The passengers on board the flight later described the moments of ‘panic’ after the pressure dropped.

 

This plane was travelling from Ibiza to Leeds. After the issue, the flight had to go for an emergency landing at Barcelona airport. Then, the passengers had to go for an alternative plane to continue with the remainder of their journey.

 

One of the passengers on board the flight named Tom Miller told the media that there was a great deal of panic as the aircraft was descending. And, he added that though it leveled out perfectly finally, initially it seemed to be quite close to the water.

 

Jet2 said that the flight had to be diverted on account of a ‘minor technical issue’ and later apologized to the people on board the flight.
