Ryanair 737 Diverts to Genoa


Contact photographer Fride Jansson
On January 23, 2013, a Ryanair Boeing 737-8AS wasn en route from Valencia to Bergamo Orio al Serio when the plane developed cabin pressure problems.

Oxygen masks were deployed, which panicked the passengers. The pilots descended the plane to 9,000 feet, and diverted to Christoforo Colombia Genova airport. Emergency services (ground staff of the port of Genoa) were deployed— teams of firefighters and ambulances.

They made an emergency landing. Of the 93 passengers, two women reported injury, one with an ear problem who was sent to the hospital of San Martino, and one in the chest who went to “Villa Scassi” Sampierdarena.

Genoa air traffic was halted to allow for the emergency.

The uninjured passengers were taken to Bergamo aboard buses.

Ryanair’s official statement was that the pilots followed standard operating procedure after the warning light indicated depressurization. “In line with standard operating procedures, the commander has deployed oxygen masks and initiated an emergency descent controlled at an altitude non-pressurized, normally before landing in Genoa at about 9.50.”
“The passengers were transported by bus to Milan in order to minimize the delay while Ryanair engineers are now inspecting the aircraft before putting it back in service.”
