Ryanair Flight Returns to Manchester Due to Door Open Indicator

A Ryanair flight, RK6967, bound for Copenhagen from Manchester, had to return to its departure airport shortly after takeoff on Monday, March 18, 2024. The Boeing 737-800, with the registration G-RUKB, was scheduled for a 1 hour and 30 minutes flight. However, the journey was interrupted due to a fault indication.


The aircraft initially climbed to 15,000 feet but then held at 7,000 feet for almost 30 minutes. According to Flight Emergency, the pilots had to interrupt the climb due to an indicator showing a door was open. This unexpected incident necessitated the return of the flight to Manchester Airport, just 58 minutes after takeoff.


Upon landing, the plane was parked in a remote area of the airport. This was done to allow the maintenance team to inspect the aircraft and identify the cause of the door open indicator. The inspection is a standard procedure in such situations to ensure the safety of future flights.
