- Ryanair flight makes emergency landing at Dublin Airport.
- The reason for the emergency was the flashing of an oil temperature indication light in the cockpit.
A Ryanair flight has made an emergency landing at Dublin Airport today.
At 2.40pm, flight FR-817 was flying from Edinburgh to Dublin when the crew declared an emergency over the Irish Sea. The issue, believed to be an oil temperature indication light flashing in the cockpit, began when the flight was close to Belfast, leading to the pilots dropping to 10,000 feet.
The flight landed in Dublin at 3.04pm with fire crews on hand on the tarmac. Upon landing the plane taxied off the runway unaided for inspection.
Ryanair’s statement on the issue, said: “The crew of this flight from Edinburgh to Dublin today contacted local ATC (in line with procedures) after a cockpit warning light indicated a possible minor technical issue prior to landing. The aircraft landed normally and customers disembarked. The aircraft is currently being inspected by Ryanair engineers and will be returned to service shortly.”
