On September 5th, flight DY7194 out of Newark Liberty (EWR) was heading to Rome Fumicino (FCO) when it diverted to Gander airport (YQX) due to “technical problems”. The flight was sold as a Norwegian flight but operated by Portuguese wet-lease operator euroAtlantic.
According to a passenger on the flight who wishes to remain anonymous the Norwegian flight operated by EuroAtlantic Airways left Newark, NJ bound for Rome, Italy at approximately 00:30 hours on September 5, 2019. Approximately three hours into the flight, the sources says that they had to make an emergency landing in Gander, Newfoundland due to “technical problems” as reported by the captain and crew.
As a result of the technical problems, the airline had to accommodate the passengers of the flight at local hotels. With most of the entire day of September 5th passed, passengers were informed around 20:00 hours that they were to go back to the airport for the flight onwards to Rome. The flight number onwards to Rome was changed to DY7994 after the emergency landing.
