Earlier tonight, a Ryanair flight from Tenerife to Liverpool made a diversion to Faro Airport, Portugal, marking the second incident in a day from the carrier.
The other incident happened earlier today when another Boeing 737-800 had to return amid reports of a shredded tyre on departure.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Incident: Ryanair Flight Tenerife-Liverpool Diverts to Faro With Problem…
FR4345 is a routine scheduled flight between Tenerife and Liverpool, with the affected rotation being operated by EI-EMF, one of the airline’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
As per data from Planespotters.net, EI-EMF is a 13.6 year old airframe which was delivered to the carrier back in April 2010.
Such a frame is registered under the Irish subsidiary, of which there are 222 units, 217 of which are in active service and five currently parked.
Ryanair flight FR4345 departed Tenerife at 2055 local time earlier tonight and proceeded north in the direction of Liverpool.
Upon reaching Portuguese airspace, FR4345 turned east and descended into Faro, with the nature of the diversion still unclear at this time.
At the time of writing (29/10/23 @ 2340 UK time), EI-EMF has since departed Faro and is continuing on to Liverpool and is expected to land over an hour late back into Merseyside.
AviationSource will approach Ryanair for a comment on the incident involving this flight from Tenerife, and as soon as we have the relevant updates, we will place them into this article accordingly.
