Published on : Wednesday, June 21, 2017

sasA Scandinavian Airlines aircraft was compelled to make an emergency landing in Gdansk in Poland a short while after it had taken off on Tuesday on account of smoke inside the plane’s cabin, according to the airline.

 

The plane was carrying five crew members and 88 passengers.

 

They were all evacuated after they made the landing. Luckily, all of them were unharmed as per the account of Knut Morten Johansen, the spokesman of SAS. He went on to add that it was yet to be clear as to what had caused the smoke in the plane’s cabin.

 

The Airbus 319 was scheduled to fly to Copenhagen from Gdansk.

 

Then, it was scheduled to arrive on the Danish capital around 0550 GMT, he said.

 

The captain of the plane decided to return to Gdansk. None of the 90 passengers on board the Swedish SAS airline flight were injured, according to Michal Dargacz, a spokesperson of Gdansk airport.

 

After the landing, people on board the flight left the aircraft via emergency calls.

 

The passengers were taken to a special room. Here, they were waiting for other connections to the Danish capital. Darhacz said that the take-offs of other flights had to be suspended during the emergency landing.
