Ryanair Boeing 737-800 between Tenerife and Bristol makes precautionary landing in Malaga


On 10 September, a Ryanair Boeing 737-800 operated flight FR4754 between Tenerife South Airport, Spain and Bristol, United Kingdom. While flying north, at 26,000 feet and just south of the Portuguese, Spanish coast, the pilots requested a diversion towards Malaga, Spain after a technical problem.

Emergency services awaited the aircraft, which safely landed at runway 13. The runway has enough length for a safe landing, Spanish air traffic control tweeted.

To Aviation24.be, Ryanair said: “This flight from Tenerife to Bristol (10th Sep) diverted to Malaga due to a minor technical issue. Passengers disembarked the aircraft safely and a replacement aircraft was arranged. Affected passengers were provided with refreshment vouchers and the flight departed to Bristol following a delay of approx. 3.5 hours. Ryanair sincerely apologises to passengers for this delay.”

Five hours after landing at Malaga, the aircraft continued to operate with a flight towards Cork, Ireland.
