In the last hour, a Ryanair flight from Naples to Dublin declared an emergency after a failed landing attempt into the Irish airport.
Ryanair Flight Declares Emergency After Landing Attempt in Dublin…
Ryanair flight FR6841 is a routine scheduled flight between Naples and Dublin, with the affected rotation being operated by EI-ENL.
As per data from Planespotters.net, EI-ENL is a 12.8 year old Boeing 737-8AS which was delivered to the Irish subsidiary back in January 2011.
Within that subsidiary of the group, they have 222 Boeing 737-800 in the fleet, of which 211 are in active service and 11 are parked.
Ryanair flight FR6841 departed Naples at 1449 local time this afternoon and headed westerly towards Dublin Airport.
On final approach into the Irish airport, the crew commenced a go-around due to issues with the flaps.
As per @Shauns_Aviation on X, EI-ENL was able to land safely on it’s second attempt, with the aircraft being met by fire and rescue on arrival.
Whilst an emergency was declared, the aircraft didn’t squawk the emergency broadcast code, known as 7700.
At this stage, it is unclear whether EI-ENL will operate another flight out of Dublin Airport tonight as technicians will no doubt need to take a look at the aircraft to assess any of the problems experienced onboard.
EI-ENL spent a total of three hours and 45 minutes in the air during this incident, with not much of a delay experienced as only an additional landing attempt was needed following this.
