A Ryanair Boeing 737-800, registration EI-EPC performing flight FR-817 from Edinburgh,SC (UK) to Dublin (Ireland) with 145 passengers and 6 crew, was enroute at FL260 about 35nm southsouthwest of Glasgow,SC (UK) when the crew detected icing at their flight level and requested an early descent. After being cleared for the descent, during the initial descent, the crew noticed light vibrations and increasing oil temperatures on both engines prompting the crew to declare PAN. The aircraft continued to Dublin for a safe landing on runway 28 about 35 minutes later.

Ryanair's Chief Pilot told The Aviation Herald: "The aircraft was at FL260 and encountering icing at this level. Crew asked ATC for an early descent to avoid further icing. As the aircraft began the descent they encountered light vibration on both engines with increasing oil temperature. The Captain declared a PAN PAN call with Scottish ATC and asked for a priority landing at Dublin. Although the crew had only declared a PAN, Scottish ATC instructed the crew to squawk 7700. The aircraft made a normal approach and landing at Dublin and all passengers disembarked normally."
