Vienna Airport told AustrianWings, that the aircraft had lost cabin pressure, the passenger oxygen masks had been released as well. The aircraft landed safely in Vienna, there were no injuries, one person however received medical assistance due to blood pressure problems.
On Dec 1st 2014 The Aviation Herald learned, that one person received injuries as result of the loss of cabin pressure and subsequent emergency descent prompting the crew to request an ambulance upon arrival at Vienna. As the first officer selected the transponder code for unlawful interference into the transponder for so far unknown reasons, military and police forces were informed about a possible hijack, Austrian Air Force dispatched fighter aircraft to escort the aircraft to landing in Vienna. There was no loss of communication at any time (other than widely claimed in media citing sources in Austria's Bundesheer).
