Read Time:55 Seconds

Jun 13. An easyJet flight has made an emergency landing after the captain onboard became ill. The flight managed to make a successful emergency touchdown at Edinburgh Airport, and there were no injuries suffered by any passengers onboard. Let’s look into what happened on the flight in question.

In the early morning of Sunday, June 12, easyJet flight 6938 was operating from Heraklion Airport (HER) on the Greek island of Crete, flying to Edinburgh Airport, Scotland. The flight was operated by one of the airline’s A320 aircraft registered G-EZTK. The flight, although due to depart at 21:20 on Saturday, was delayed, eventually departing the Greek airport at 22:48.

According to reports, as the flight entered its final stages as it began its descent and approach to Edinburgh Airport, the captain came out of the flight deck and entered the toilet at the front of the passenger cabin. However, passengers onboard the flight reported that he did not return to the flight deck, remaining in the bathroom until after landing. This, however, has not been confirmed by the airline.
