​Ryanair Flight Plummets From 36,000 Feet For Emergency Landing

​Ryanair Flight Plummets From 36,000 Feet For Emergency Landing

Ryanair passengers were given quite the fright after their plane was forced to make an emergency landing amid fears that the cabin was depressurising at 36,000 feet.

Flight FR7312 was heading from Dublin to Zadar, but staff had to make a controlled descent 'due to an inflight depressurisation'. Passengers were given oxygen masks, before the flight made its emergency stop in Frankfurt.

German newspaper Tagesspiegel reported that 33 passengers out of the 180 on board were taken to hospital, adding that Federal Police said many people were complaining of 'headache and earache and suffered from nausea'.

One passenger, Miomir Todorovic, explained on Facebook that they experienced decompression 'at 11,000 metres' and had a 'rapid descent to 2,800 metres'.

He also said he could now barely hear from his right ear, but added it was 'important that we survived'.

After the hairy moment, passengers apparently had to wait until Saturday morning for another flight - but to make matters worse there was then a shortage of accommodation, leaving many stranded in Frankfurt-Hahn airport with 'no place to rest'.

Another passenger called Minerva Galvan also tweeted about the terrifying flight, as well as the chaos afterwards, writing:


In a later tweet, she said: "We cannot take a plane, @Ryanair. We had an emergency landing yesterday. We are abandoned at the airport. We need help, we need to rest. This is how you care about your customers?"

A Ryanair spokesman said: "This flight from Dublin to Zadar [July 13] diverted to Frankfurt Hahn due to an inflight depressurisation.

"In line with standard procedure, the crew deployed oxygen masks and initiated a controlled descent.

"The aircraft landed normally and customers disembarked, where a small number received medical attention as a precaution.

"Customers were provided with refreshment vouchers and hotel accommodation was authorised, however there was a shortage of available accommodation.

"Customers will board a replacement aircraft which will depart to Zadar this morning and Ryanair sincerely apologised for any inconvenience."
