A Lufthansa Canadair CRJ-900, registration D-ACKK performing flight LH-1912 from Munich (Germany) to Olbia (Italy), was enroute at FL390 about 30nm southeast of Pisa (Italy) when the crew declared emergency reporting smoke on board. The aircraft descended rapidly, performed two 360s to lose height, and landed safely on Pisa's runway 04R about 18 minutes later. The aircraft stopped on the runway at about 17:10L (15:10Z).

The runway (the only one available for civilian operation) was closed as result of the emergency landing for about 4 hours.

The airport reported the aircraft diverted to Pisa due to a technical problem, landed and stopped at the end of the runway "engaging" in such a way, that Pisa had to be closed and 16 flights be cancelled. The aircraft was moved off the runway at about 21:30L. The passengers were taken to hotels and are to continue the journey the next morning.

Currently it is being suspected that the smoke originated from an electronic cigarette.
