FlySafair says no injuries were reported after one of the airline’s planes was forced…

FlySafair says no injuries were reported after one of the airline’s planes was forced to make an emergency landing at Cape Town International Airport last night. The Boeing 737, which was carrying 154 passengers and five crew members circled above Robben Island for two hours before landing back at the airport from where it had taken off. FlySafair’s Head of Sales and Distribution, Kirby Gordon, says the decision to return to the airport was made after the flight crew were alerted to possible issues with the plane’s technical systems: “Unfortunately in order to be able to return to Cape Town they needed to burn off a bit of the fuel to make the aircraft lighter This is an important precaution and unfortunately the Boeing cannot dump fuel so it has to be burnt off, which meant that they kept a holding pattern over Robben Island while they burnt off that fuel. The crew then executed a great landing just after 19h30 where the aircraft was met by the airport safety vehicles.”
