Medical issue prompts emergency landing of Ryanair flight


An aircraft that was travelling to Edinburgh was forced to make an emergency landing at East Midlands airport yesterday on account of a medical emergency on board the plane.

The passengers flying from Malta to Edinburgh had made an unplanned stop off in the East Midlands yesterday afternoon.

This flight had left Malta International Airport in Luqa around 1.35 a.m. and was scheduled to arrive in Edinburgh at 3.45 p.m. Initially, it had taken off from Malta at 12.45 but was about 50 minutes late. Just a while after 4 p.m. on a popular micro-blogging site, Ryanair flight FR6696 Luqa-Edinburgh is announcing an emergency and would be diverting to East Midlands Airport.

One of the passengers on board the flight named Pauline tweeted around 5.15 p.m. that the plane had to be diverted to Italy for a medical emergency on the way out to Malta.

Currently it is seated at East Mislands Airport for the same way home.

But then, the details of the medical emergency are yet to be known.
