A TAP Air Portugal Airbus A319-100, registration CS-TTK performing flight TP-754 from Lisbon (Portugal) to Copenhagen (Denmark), was on approach to Copenhagen's runway 04R when the crew detected a burning smell in the cockpit and spotted light haze. The crew requested priority and continued for a safe landing on runway 04R about 5 minutes later.

Denmark's HCL reported the crew did not don their oxygen masks. After rollout, while taxiing the crew discovered the source of the odour was a cockpit display. After the aircraft had reached the gate an ECAM message indicated a fan in the rear cargo bay. Emergency services therefore inspected the rear cargo bay but did not find any trace of fire, heat, smoke or smell. Maintenance removed the cockpit display in question but found no fault, only some dust. The HCL believes that an electrical source covered with dust at the cockpit display in question may have been the cause of the odour/haze.
