Swiss A320 at Zurich on Jun 13th 2021, fumes in cockpit
Last Update: June 17, 2021 / 09:24:38 GMT/Zulu time
The same aircraft had another smoke/fume event in Berlin earlier the same day, see Incident: Swiss A320 at Berlin on Jun 13th 2021, smoke in cockpit. When The Aviation Herald inquired about that occurrence with the airline, the reply indicated the event had actually happened on LX-967, which prompted The Aviation Herald to also check the arrival of the aircraft back into Zurich, during which the event repeated resulting in this coverage.
The aircraft is still on the ground in Zurich about 44 hours after landing.
On Jun 17th 2021 the airline confirmed there was an odour on approach to Berlin. The APU was disabled under minimum equipment list requirements on the ground in Berlin and the aircraft returned to Zurich, however, on the return the odour occurred again.
