A Ryanair flight that was travelling from Budapest to Dublin was compelled to make an emergency landing after a passenger fell ill. Flight FR 1024 had called for an emergency just prior to 6 p.m. today.
This is because one of the fliers became unwell as the plane approached the coast of south east England.
The flight had sent a 7700 signal to the control tower that had indicated an emergency through the captain of the airplane. The plane was reportedly heading towards Norfolk when the signal was sent.
Moreover, the flight was diverted to land at the Stanstead Airport that is close to London. Now, the flight has landed safely.
A spokeswoman of Ryanair said that the flight from Budapest to Dublin had to be diverted to London Stansted soon after a passenger fell ill on board the flight. The aircraft was able to make a safe landing. When it arrived in the airport, it was met by paramedics who offered medical assistance.
Ryanair apologized to all its affected customers for the short delay to their flight destination.
