On Sunday, Ryanair flight FR1901 made a safety landing at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport en route from Dublin to Krakow. The German Federal Police then investigated the EI-EMO.

The approximately 160 passengers had to leave the Boeing 737-800. For several hours, the executive used sniffer dogs and experts, among other things, to meticulously examine the medium-haul jet. According to the authorities, the measure has been completed and nothing has been found. However, for “tactical reasons”, the Federal Police do not want to provide any further information on the reason for the safety landing and the subsequent search of the EI-EMO.

According to unconfirmed information from Ryanair circles, there should have been a bomb threat. This would also explain the meticulous investigation by the federal police with specially trained explosive dogs. The affected machine was still at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport on Monday morning. Ryanair used a replacement machine to get the passengers to their actual destination, Krakow. However, this took a long time, but an exemption was granted due to the night flight ban.
