Last Update: November 12, 2013 / 16:52:57 GMT/Zulu time
Italy's ANSV rated the occurrence a serious incident and opened an investigation reporting that the aircraft was performing a positioning flight without passengers when smoke in the cabin forced the crew to use their oxygen masks.
On Nov 12th 2013 the French BEA reported in their weekly bulletin that during initial climb just after thrust reduction the crew activated the air conditioning systems (packs). The first officer immediately noticed bad fumes and smell prompting the crew to don their oxygen masks and execute the initial smoke drill. The captain requested a priority landing at Malpensa where the aircraft landed without further event. After landing all 6 crew members went to hospital for blood testing. Italy's ANSV is investigating the serious incident.
The aircraft had landed at Milan Malpensa's Airport as flight U2-2788 on Nov 2nd 2013 arriving from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France).
