A Thomas Cook Airbus A330-200 OY-VKF en route from Cancun to Manchester had 338 people aboard when pilots made an emergency diversion to Bermuda due to what one source called a “reported fire in the cabin” at about 8.20pm. Another account recorded the problem as ‘smoke coming from the in-flight entertainment system’.

Pilots made a safe landing with emergency services on standby. Passengers disembarked without injury, and were provided hotel accommodations until their flight out.

Thomas Cook’s official statement is that ‘It was initially reported as a suspected fire in the cabin, but there was no fire.’There was a small amount of smoke detected by a member of the crew in the cabin, but it is thought that was something to do with the in-flight entertainment system.’

What: Thomas Cook Boeing 767-300 en route from Manchester to Dalaman Turkey
Where: West of Amsterdam
When: Aug 15 2010 8.40 am
Who: 320 passengers
Why: While en route over the ocean near Amsterdam, the cabin filled with smoke. The crew diverted to London where they made a safe landing. The source of the smoke was determined to be packaging in an oven. Although the smoke had dispersed, the West Sussex Fire and Rescue Emergency Services were on hand.

The plane was routed to Manchester for a crew change before the flight could be resumed.

George’s Point of View

Hopefully they change out that oven along with the crew.
