  • Air Blue flight diverted to Budapest

    An Air Blue Airbus A321-200, registration AP-BJB performing flight ED-221 from Manchester,EN (UK) via Trabzon (Turkey) to Islamabad (Pakistan), was enroute near Budapest (Hungary) when a male UK citizen (29) suffered symptoms of an epileptical fit prompting the crew to divert to Budapest. The airplane landed safely on runway 31R, the passenger was taken to a local hospital.

    While the airplane was being prepared for departure to continue the flight, word arrived that the passenger had recovered in the hospital about 20km away from the airport, so that the crew decided to wait for the arrival of the passenger, who joined the flight again. The airplane departed after 5:10 hours on the ground.
