(ADW) Hahn Airport, just over the border in Germany, was the scene of a Ryanair emergency landing for one of its aircraft on Tuesday evening.

At about 8pm a Ryanair flight reported a drop in cabin pressure in the plane triggering the pilot to make an emergency landing as a precaution, back at Hahn Airport from where it had just taken off.

According to police, there were no consequence and the pilot had simply reported the incident as an “air emergency” as a precaution, in order to quickly clear the runway to make a landing. Passengers stated that no oxygen masks were deployed.

An investigation is now taking place as to what caused the cabin pressure to drop. As an extra precaution, firefighters, paramedics and ambulances were sent to the airport.
