News – Justice | Ryanair plane makes emergency landing after fire alert

An Ryanair plane carrying more than 160 passengers and crew members made an emergency landing Friday at Thessaloniki airport in northern Greece following a fire alert.

The flight, departing from Berlin to Athens, was redirected after issuing a distress signal as it flew over the Chalkidiki peninsula in the north of the country, said the Greek Civil Protection Agency.

The crew reported a cockpit fire, but emergency services deployed to the scene did not have to respond, the Greek news agency Ana reported. No injuries were reported among the 157 passengers.
