Passengers hospitalised after Ryanair flight makes emergency landing in Italy

Two passengers were injured when a Ryanair flight from Valencia, Spain to Bergamo, Italy had to make an emergency landing in Genoa, Italy when potential loss of cabin pressure was reported.

The Guardian reports that two female passengers were taken to hospital after flight FR4632, which was carrying more than 90 people, reacted to a pressurisation warning by descending to a lower altitude.

The two women were later released from hospital.

According to Reuters, Ryanair said the flight landed 'normally' in Genoa and the rest of the passengers were taken to Bergamo by bus.

A Ryanair statement said: 'In line with standard operational procedure, the pilot deployed the oxygen masks and began an emergency supervised descent to a non-pressurised altitude before landing normally in Genoa at 9.50am.'

The low-cost airline added that its engineers were inspecting the plane before allowing it back in service.
