189-seat passenger plane makes emergency landing on Spain’s Costa del Sol after its engine shuts down mid-flight

Malaga Lauda

AN 189-seat passenger plane has been forced to make an emergency landing on the Costa del Sol.

The Austrian Lauda aircraft was forced to turn back to Malaga Airport when its engine shut down mid-flight.

A warning had been reported for the right-hand engine of the Dusseldorf-bound Flight OE3225 during its climb at about 6500 feet.

The Airbus A320-200 plane, which is managed by Ryanair, landed safely at Malaga and passengers were able to disembark normally.

A replacement Ryanair Boeing 737-800 was eventually located to get the passengers to the German city with a delay of about 5.5 hours.

The service had been due to depart at 10:12am on Thursday, but it finally took off at a little before 11am.

A runway was opened for the plane on its return to the airport so that other planes were not blocked from taking off.
