A Smartwings Boeing 737-800, registration OM-HEX performing flight QS-1691 from Antalya (Turkey) to Kosice (Slovakia), was on approach to Kosice's runway 19 when the crew initiated a go around due to a flaps asymmetry indication. The aircraft entered a hold while the crew worked the related checklists, the aircraft subsequently positioned for another approach to runway 01 and landed safely (speed over ground 161 knots) about 28 minutes after the go around.

The airline confirmed a flaps asymmetry indication, the crew therefore landed at a different flaps setting. The indication turned out to have been false.

The aircraft continued service about 3 hours after landing.
