A SAS Scandinavian Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration LN-RKK performing flight SK-7719 from Billund (Denmark) to Fuerteventura,CI (Spain) with 195 passengers and 6 crew, was enroute at FL340 about 60nm west of Bremen (Germany) when cabin crew observed smoke from the aft galley. While flight crew decided and set course to return to Copenhagen the galley's circuit breakers were opened causing the smoke to subside. The aircraft landed safely on Copenhagen's runway 22L about one hour later.

The aircraft was able to depart again after about 5.5 hours on the ground and reached Fuerteventura with a delay of 7 hours.

The Danish Havarikommission reported the crew identified an oven in the aft galley as source of the smoke and tripped the circuit breakers. Maintenane subsequently found an electrical defect in the oven. The German BFU is investigating the occurrence because the aircraft was over Germany at that time.
