A Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) jet bound for Oslo with 169 passengers on board had to make an emergency landing in Aberdeen, Scotland on Sunday because of a sudden loss of air pressure in the cabin.
“The pilots received indications of the loss of pressure in the cabin, and descended to 10,000 feet,” SAS’ information chief Knut Morten Johansen told state broadcaster NRK. “That’s routine to normalize pressure.”
The flight, which was on its way from Dublin to London, “then went in for landing in Aberdeen, without further problems.”
The flight had left Dublin at 11:46am and was due to land in Oslo at 1:40pm. The aircraft involved was a Boeing 737-883.
One passenger told website VG.no that the oxygen masks were released and there was no panic. SAS was expected to transfer passengers to other flights, or send another jet to Aberdeen to fly them on to Oslo.
