About one hour ago U2 4935 enroute DTM to PRG made an emergency landing (may I call it so) at DRS. Does anyone have any info on this? Why? The arrival and the flight back to DTM are shown as cancelled on PRG airport page. What a/c is flown on this route normally?

The a/c involved was not the A319 EZY4935 G-EZNM. It was another carrier's a/c (no idea which one, sorry!) which caused the runway to be closed temporarily. EZY4935 diverted DRS and arrived 1937. It departed again at 2035 and launched for DTM as an empty ferry sector. The EZY4936 PRG-DTM was cancelled as no time to await PRG re-opening or road transportation of passengers from PRG due to strict DTM curfew.
There you go, and that's pretty much straight from the horse's mouth....

PRG suffered limited closure of the airport due problematic landing of OK ATR (sorry do not have reg), that reported problems with landing gear. After succesfull landing airport reopened. It was only problem yesterday night than tarffic was smooth and easy
