A Lufthansa Airbus A319-100, registration D-AILA performing flight LH-1626 from Munich (Germany) to Krakow (Poland), was climbing to FL190 out of Munich when the crew requested to stop climb at FL120 but continue the departure route. The crew subsequently requested to be kept in the vicinity of Munich Airport and finally advised ATC that they requested to return to Munich, would not declare emergency, not request priority, it would be a normal landing, they just had a smell after departure. The aircraft returned to Munich for a safe landing about 30 minutes after departure.

The flight was cancelled.

The aircraft is still on the ground 24 hours after landing back.

The aircraft had been involved in a series of fume events recently, see Incident: Lufthansa A319 at Munich on Jun 25th 2018, third fume event in 4 days.
