About 3 minutes later another KLM Boeing 737-800 declared emergency due to smoke in the cockpit indicating they would need to evacuate, see Incident: KLM B738 at Amsterdam on Mar 4th 2013, smoke in cockpit and cabin, due to the specific request for runway 18R the A333 was kept on approach to runway 18R while the Boeing was re-assigned runway 18C, a large emergency response was invoked by the airport to facilitate both emergencies estimated to arrive at the same time. The A330 landed safely on runway 18R about 30 minutes after departure, about 20 minutes after declaring emergency and about 5 minutes after the Boeing.
