SWR35R emergency LSGG (lost pressurisation)

March 24th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

On 24th of March at 1530Z, the SWR35R from EGLC (London City) to LSGG (Geneva) declared PAN PAN (squawk 7700) and landed safely, accompanied by the fire brigade with the callsign SATURNE.

The PAN PAN situation caused quite a bit of troubles for other aircrafts that were sent into holding.
