India Express B738 near Muscat on Jul 17th 2022, burning odour in galley
Last Update: July 17, 2022 / 17:36:49 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft remained on the ground in Muscat for about 6 hours, then continued the flight and reached Dubai with a delay of 6:20 hours.
The airline reported a burning odour became apparent from one of the vents in the forward galley prompting the crew to work the checklist for smoke, fire or fumes and divert to Muscat. An engineering inspection including ground runs with both engines and APU did not detect anything abnormal. The aircraft was released with the oven disabled under minimum equipment list requirements.
The aircraft performed the return flight IX-354 and reached Kozhikode with a delay of 4 hours.
