Last Update: September 18, 2021 / 10:40:52 GMT/Zulu time
The airline reported one of the engines showed erroneous indications prompting the crew to divert to Addis Ababa. Due to difficult communications with Addis Ababa they still don't know the exact reason for the diversion. The aircraft had departed Mombasa with delay due to an unrelated incident, when smoke appeared from one of the luggage of one of the passengers. Passengers are currently in the waiting lounge in Addis Ababa, a replacement aircraft has been dispatched.
Passengers reported they had boarded the aircraft in Mombasa already when flight attendants began shouting to immediately leave the aircraft, upon disembarking it appeared there was smoke from one of the luggage holds. About 3 hours later they boarded again after they had been told the issue was resolved. In flight the crew announced that one engine had to be shut down and they were diverting to Addis Ababa.
