Dutch Boeing 737 Makes Emergency Landing In Croatia

There was drama over the skies of Croatia in the early hours of Saturday morning when a Boeing 737-800 had to make an emergency landing at Zagreb’s Pleso Airport.

The Boeing plane, operated by Dutch airline company Transavia, had to land in Croatia at 1.35am because of smoke coming from the passengers cabin, reports 24sata.

There were 192 passengers aboard the Dutch plane that was on its way to Amsterdam from Egypt when it made the emergency landing. Passengers were put up in a hotel as plans were made for a replacement plane to arrive to take the passengers onto their final destination. Boeing technicians will arrive to find out the cause of the smoke in the cabin.

“The Pilots asked Croatia Airline technicians to look at the aircraft, but they are not certified for Boeing’s, so they have to wait for the arrival of another aircraft from Amsterdam, which should land in Zagreb at 17:10 pm today, and take the passengers back to Amsterdam at 18:00,” said Drago Skrlec from Zagreb Airport.
