A Ryanair Boeing 737-800, registration EI-ENP, was climbing through about 6000 feet out of Tenerife’s runway 07 when the crew turned right to escape an ash cloud.  Over the island of Gran Canaria, the plane reverted to a northerly track.

Due to issues with both engines, the crew decided to declare an emergency and return to Tenerife when climbing through FL220.

The plane entered a hold at FL120 to the south of Fuerteventura Island and landed safely on Tenerife South’s runway 07 around two hours after taking off.

Passengers stated that a large number of emergency services were waiting for the plane. Both engines had apparently ingested ashes from the volcano Cumbre Vieja on La Palma Island, about 75 nautical miles northwest of Tenerife South Airport.

With a 6.5-hour delay, a replacement Boeing 737-800, EI-EGD, arrived at Charleroi.

About 42 hours after landing, the occurrence aircraft is still on the ground in Tenerife.
