A Boeing 737-300, operated by Air Contractors, had to make an emergency landing at Cork Airport, Ireland, due to fuel leak suspicion.
The plane, carrying 150 passengers and 5 crew members, was on its way from Belfast, Ireland to Reus, Spain, when the pilot noticed the fuel leakage warning. The plane was then diverted to Cork for making an emergency landing.
Full emergency protocol was deployed at the airport as the plane touched the runway at about 11:45 p.m. on June 24. No one was hurt.
The initial investigation confirmed that there was no fuel leakage; the suspicion arose due to faulty instrument.
The passengers were accommodated in hotels for the night. They resumed their journey next day.
