Hi there,

I've just been surfing the net and decided to check the flight status of EK025 DXB-GLA and found that it was earlier diverted to IST. Anyone know why this happened? At first I thought it might be something to do with the heavy snow in the UK but perhaps something else is wrong?

DXB-GLA Divert to IST because of snow in GLA? They would have diverted to a much closer airport.

It was most likely a medical emergency....and technically an emergency landing not diversion.

Confirmed as a medical emergency, an 81 year old British national (name withheld) suffered a heart attack on board, he was taken to the International Hospital in Istanbul by ambulance from IST and last we heard he is recovering and in stable condition. Flight was able to continue on and arrived just under three hours delayed at approx 14:55 local.



Keep Discovering

Good news, well done to the crew.

Relating to GLA, I am devastated that NATS have taken down the atc link on egpf.com!
