Flybe flight forced to make emergency landing following technical issue

Published on : Wednesday, January 17, 2018

FlybeA Flybe flight was compelled to make an emergency landing at Glasgow Prestwick Airport following a technical issue.


The jet was on its way to Belfast from Manchester.


Eventually it had to be diverted to Glasgow earlier this evening. Flight BE480 was able to land safely and passengers on board would be moved to an alternative airplane to continue their journey.


Passengers have appreciated the efforts of their pilot online mentioning how he had dealt with the awkward situation in a completely professional and calm manner.


Flybe asserted that they can confirm that the captain of the above flight had taken the recommended action after a suspected technical issue en route from Manchester to Belfast City Airport.


And, as an additional precautionary measure, it was elected to divert to Glasgow Prestwick Airport.


Flybe has added that all the passengers would be placed on alternative aircraft. Currently it is repositioning to Glasgow Prestwick so that they would be able to complete their travel without further delay.


Last November, a Flybe jet had crash-landed at Belfast International Airport.


The Inverness-bound flight was carrying 52 passengers on board when its nose gear failed and forced the pilot to perform a tough move.
