Journalist Sada Sreedharan says Widerøe's problems were caused by a technical error.

– There was a slight burnt smell on the board due to a technical error. This is a common consequence of such a technical error. Once the pilots identified the technical error, as per our procedures, the aircraft returned to the Forte normally and landed normally. He says it was not an emergency landing.

The pilots then contacted the air traffic service and reported the technical fault.

– We did not ask for increased readiness for landing, but the tower at Forte Airport has its own procedures for alerting with increased readiness for landing.

– Signs of a good safety culture

Sridharan says Widerøe has a better understanding of passengers who may have experienced the situation as extreme.

– But we want to assure you that this is a sign of a good safety culture and that the procedures of both the airline, the air traffic service and the emergency services are working as they should. The captain of the flight in question gave a short briefing where passengers were informed of the situation, he says.

In the event of such incidents, Widerøe usually rebook passengers to the nearest possible departures.

– In cases where these departures are full, we try to divert passengers to nearby airports to fly from there if possible. In this case, Florø is an alternative, where only DAT flies to Oslo, says Sreedharan, referring to DAT.
