An Edelweiss Air Airbus A320-200, registration HB-JJK performing flight WK-319 from Tromso (Norway) to Zurich (Switzerland), was on approach to Zurich's runway 28 when the crew initiated a missed approach reporting they had a flaps lock indication. The crew subsequently advised that runway 28 was too short for landing and requested runway 34 (winds from 270 degrees at 6 knots), they would enter a hold to prepare the landing. The aircraft climbed to FL070, then positioned for an approach to runway 34 and landed safely at a higher than normal speed (about 160 knots over ground) about 30 minutes after the missed approach.

A passenger reported the captain hinted they had a flaps malfunction and landed with slats only. After landing emergency services checked the brakes on the runway before the aircraft taxied to the apron.
