EasyJet flight from UK came within seconds of crashing into Lake Geneva with disaster only averted when desperate Swiss air traffic controllers told pilots ‘check your altitude immediately!’, report finds

An easyJet flight from the United Kingdom came within seconds of crashing into Lake Geneva, according to local reports.

The disaster was only averted when desperate Swiss air traffic controllers told pilots to ‘check your altitude immediately’ when they spotted the imminent disaster.

The aircraft was flying from Edinburgh, Scotland to Geneva Cointrin airport on November 5 last year, and was carrying 157 passengers.

While approaching runway 22 at Geneva Airport, the Airbus A320 Neo sank to an unsafe altitude that meant it was just seconds away from crashing into the water, according to daily Swiss regional newspaper Tribune de Genève.

The Swiss report said the plane was just 750 feet from the surface of the lake while still 7.5 miles away from the runway, based on tracking data.

According to the ’24 heures’ report, the plane should have been more than three times higher at this point in its descent.

‘During the approach to runway 22, the aircraft descended significantly below the glideslope and the flight crew initiated a go-around,’ the Swiss Safety Investigation Service (SESE) said, Tribune de Genève reported.

SESE announced it was opening an investigation into the incident on January 16.

At the time, it classified the incident as ‘serious’, saying that the aircraft had sunk well below the ‘descent line’ during its approach.

The descent line is the angle which an aircraft must maintain in its final stages before landing to maintain a safe height as it approaches the runway.

The reason behind the low altitude remains unknown, reports said.

According to the report, the aircraft was at just 230 meters (750 feet) above Lake Geneva as it passed Chens-sur-Léman, 12km (7.5 miles) from the runway.
