Four crew were taken to hospital as a precaution, and all 165 passengers evacuated the Airbus A320 unharmed, reported The Sun.
One passenger told the newspaper: ”The cabin started to smell of smoke and then we could see smoke and the crew were looking a bit worried so the captain came over the tannoy and announced we were making an emergency landing.
”It was all a bit worrying but we landed safely and then fire crews got onboard with masks and oxygen tanks and we were then told to get off.”
“We’re very sorry for the delay to our customers’ journeys after our aircraft diverted as a precaution due to a technical issue,” said a British Airways spokesperson.
“Safety is always our top priority, and we would never operate an aircraft if we believed it posed any health or safety risk to our customers or crew.
“Our customers were able to continue their journeys on a different aircraft.”
