A plane had to make an emergency landing at Munich Airport.

The reason: a cracked windshield.

The passengers were rebooked on other flights.

Munich - It is probably the horror scenario for many people who are afraid of flying: In the air it is suddenly discovered that the plane is no longer airworthy and an emergency landing has to be initiated.

That's exactly what happened on Sunday, February 4th, on a flight from Ljubljana (Slovenia) to Luxembourg.

At that time she was still in Austrian airspace.

When asked by our editorial team, Munich Airport can confirm the incident: The pilot alerted the tower at Munich Airport, a spokesman said.

“If the alarm is triggered, the fire brigade and rescue service are on hand.” This is the usual safety procedure if a fire breaks out on the machine, parts break off or passengers are injured.

Fortunately, none of these cases occurred: “The landing was safe.
