Blue Air flight 0B180, a Boeing 737-530, was en-route from Prague Airport Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport (OTP) when it lost cabin pressure at FL350.
The flight crew performed an emergency descent to FL70, and safely landed on runway 08R at the destination.
It was a "sudden depressurization, our ears still hurt, an awkward sound in the back, then a warm air with an overheating smell", said Cristian Anghel, one of the passengers on board the plane.
