On the 11th of June, a Norwegian Long Haul Boeing 787 operating Norwegian Air Shuttle flight DY7019 had to divert to Shannon Airport after the crew were forced to shut down the left hand side (No.1) engine due to low engine oil warnings.
The flight, with 294 people onboard, was at FL380 around 400nm West of Shannon when the crew declared an emergency and made the decision to shut the engine down and divert.
They turned around at 19:43 local time, descended to FL140, dumped fuel and landed on Shannon’s Runway 24, around 21:00 local time.
The airline reported that the aircraft diverted to Shannon as a precaution due to a technical issue, and has remained on the ground under inspection.
The aircraft involved in the incident was 2 year old Norwegian Long Haul Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner LN-LNH (MSN 36526). Two Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 high bypass turbofans are fitted on the aircraft.
Norwegian Air Shuttle flight DY7019 is a scheduled international flight from Paris – Charles de Gaulle (CDG/LFPG) to New York – John F. Kennedy Int’l (JFK / KJFK), with a scheduled flight time of 7 hours and 30 minutes.
