Edinburgh-Stockholm plane in emergency landing

Norwegian aircraft makes emergency landing in Stavanger
A plane operated by Norwegian that was flying from Edinburgh in Scotland to Stockholm Arlanda had to make an emergency landing at Stavanger in Norway after the cabin filled with smoke.
The landing went well and the aircraft was immediately evacuated, with fire engines not being required at the scene.
“Because of smoke coming from the food ovens, the pilots took the decision to land,” said Tonje Nass, press officer at Norwegian. “It was a controlled and totally undramatic landing.”
SVT reported that the captain had described the problem to the passengers, who stayed calm throughout the incident. The plane was soon allowed to take off again from Stavanger.
