A Ryanair flight with over 160 passengers and crew on board made an emergency landing at Thessaloniki airport on Friday over a fire alert, officials said.
No injuries were reported among the 157 passengers that included a baby, the civil protection authority said.
The flight from Berlin, originally heading to Athens, was rerouted after issuing a distress signal as it flew over the Halkidiki peninsula in northern Greece, the agency said.
The crew reported a fire in the cockpit, but emergency services deployed to the scene did not have to intervene, state news agency ANA said.
Emergency protocols were deployed and the aircraft landed safely at Thessaloniki’s Macedonia airport, where 157 ticketed passengers, an infant and six members of the crew disembarked, it said.
