Ryanair Boeing 737-8AS, Registration EI-EMO, Flight No FR1901, which was on its route from Dublin to Poland, made an emergency landing in Berlin.
The Ryanair aircraft landed in Berlin on Sunday, as per German authorities. However, no specifics have been made available. After receiving a bomb threat, the aircraft made an emergency landing in Berlin before continuing to the Polish city of Krakow.
At 8 p.m. local time on Sunday, the jet carrying 160 people arrived at Berlin’s Brandenburg Airport. Authorities performed a security check when the plane arrived, according to German police. But nothing was discovered.
After evacuating and investigating the aircraft, police said that no risk was discovered during the security check.
A week ago, another Ryanair passenger jet was forced to land in Belarus.
Belarusian officials scrambled a fighter aircraft and issued what turned out to be a false bomb scare to compel a Ryanair aircraft to land, and then imprisoned an opposition-minded journalist on board, bringing outrage from Europe and the United States.
Ryanair’s flight from Greece to Lithuania was diverted to Belarus for many hours to arrest a dissenting journalist on board.
Similarly, in July of last year, a Ryanair aircraft from Dublin to Krakow was forced to make an emergency landing in London owing to a bogus bomb threat on board.
