SAS flight makes emergency landing at Munich

Published on : Saturday, March 25, 2017

sasA flight of SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) that was travelling from Munich to Oslo had to go for an emergency landing at the Munich International Airport on Friday, following the dysfunctioning of one of the engines of the SAS Boeing 737 engine.

 

This flight had taken off around 1.14 p.m., said one of the passengers named Camilla Sylling Clausen. She said that right after the take-off, it almost seemed that the plane had started falling.

 

Thereafter, an emergency situation on board was announced around 1.22 p.m.

 

But, Clausen said that a “friendly captain” told that they would have a normal landing. Finally, the plane was able to make a safe landing at Munich. Emergency crews and firefighters were summoned at the Munich Airport. And, the passengers were being attended to, by the airline.

 

A spokesperson of SAS, Fredrik Henrikkson told the media that the left engine of the aircraft had started developing problems a short while after the take-off.

 

The cockpit crew decided to shut down the engine, as is often done in situations and return to the airport, as per Henrikkson. He added that all the passengers of the flight were rebooked on alternative flights to Oslo.

 

He acknowledged that such situations make things quite inconvenient for the passengers on-board the flight. And though such situations seldom occur, there are rules that are always followed by SAS. The captain of SAS had conversations with the passengers about what had actually happened, before they had disembarked from the flight.
