An easyJet flight en route from London Stansted to Edinburgh was forced to divert due to an emergency onboard. Passengers onboard the EZY312 flight experienced an unexpected change of plans as the aircraft made an unscheduled landing at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

The airline swiftly organized a second flight to transport passengers to their intended destination of Edinburgh.

Despite the disruption, easyJet acknowledged that the incident was an extraordinary circumstance beyond their control. They took responsibility for the situation and worked diligently to minimize the impact on passengers, ensuring their safety and providing necessary assistance throughout.
