Amsterdam-bound aircraft makes emergency landing in Zagreb

A Boeing 737 operated by the low-cost Dutch airline Transavia made an emergency landing in Zagreb late Friday night when smoke affected passengers in the cabin, airport sources said.

The plane, with 192 passengers aboard was heading to Amsterdam from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.


It landed at Zagreb at 1:30 a.m. (2330GMT), an airport spokesman said.

Two passengers had breathing problems when a smell of burning plastic invaded the cabin. They were treated by medical staff after the landing.

Passengers and crew, all safe and sound spent the night in a hotel waiting for another aircraft to pick them up. It was due to leave Zagreb Saturday at 6:00 pm (1600 GMT).
