An Aeroflot Boeing 737-800, registration VQ-BWE performing flight SU-1524 from Moscow Sheremetyevo to Gorno-Altaysk (Russia) with 76 passengers and 7 crew, was enroute at FL350 about 140nm northwest of Omsk (Russia) when the crew decided to divert to Omsk due to the odour of burnt wires in the cabin. The aircraft landed safely on Omsk's runway 07 about 27 minutes later.

A replacement Boeing 737-800 registration VQ-BHB reached Gorno-Altaysk with a delay of 6.5 hours.

Maintenance determined the source of the smell were cables in an economy class lavatory. The aircraft remained on the ground in Omsk for about 41 hours before positioning back to Moscow and returned to service about 55 hours after landing in Omsk.
