Shortly after the plane took flight, it met with an emergency in the cockpit. It was about 22000 feet over the Irish Sea, when the incident occurred. One of the engines had to shut down, when they suspected an oil leak. That is when the flight decided to return back to Dublin. After it safely landed at the airport near about 11 in the morning, the runway was examined for oil leaks.
The CityJet authority later apologized to the passengers via Twitter. It said, “Aircraft has now returned to Dublin and is back on stand. There was an oil indication warning on one of the four engines, so they took a precautionary return to base in Dublin.” They also added later, “A replacement aircraft is due to depart with an estimated departure time of 12:15.”
The entire aviation industry is being very cautious after an EgyptAir flight first disappeared and then crashed. That incident has spread enough panic among the passengers.
All the passengers and the crew members of the CityJet flight WX112 have been reported to be safe.
