A KLM Boeing 737-900, registration PH-BXS performing flight KL-1975 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Budapest (Hungary) with 171 passengers and 6 crew, was on approach to Budapest when the crew first reported receiving an ELT signal and 2 minutes later reported problems with the flaps requesting a longer than normal downwind. While on final approach the crew maintained 2500 feet reporting the flaps problems were continuing, upon overflying the runway turned to join another downwind, advised they would land at 180 knots and landed safely on runway 31R at that higher than normal speed about 15 minutes after reporting the flaps problem.

The flaps had extended to 15 degrees only.

The aircraft was able to depart for the return flight KL-1976 after about 100 minutes on the ground and reached Amsterdam with a delay of 45 minutes.
