A Jet2 plane has been forced to make an emergency landing for the second time in two weeks.

On Friday, the aircraft was flying from Newcastle to Prague when it was diverted to Frankfurt due to a “technical fault”.

The same aircraft was flying from Ibiza to Leeds when it was diverted to Barcelona on July 16.

In both cases, terrified passengers spoke of how oxygen masks were deployed as the pilot declared an “emergency” on the plane.

Referring to the second incident, a spokesman for the airline insisted passenger safety had not been compromised and said the plane had been grounded while engineers investigate a technical fault.

“We would like to emphasise that at no point was the safety of passengers compromised,” a Jet2 spokesman said.

“On landing, our crew liaised with everyone on board to ensure their welfare.

“Over the next few days our most senior engineers will be investigating the aircraft fully.

“At this stage it is too early in the process to comment on the cause of the technical fault.

“We would like to apologise to our customers, as safety is always our highest priority.”
