A TAP Air Portugal Airbus A319-100, registration CS-TTK, operating flight TP367 from London Heathrow (UK) to Lisbon (Portugal) with 91 passengers and 6 crew, had departed runway 09L at London Heathrow, when, shortly after liftoff, dense smoke and the smell of burned plastics appeared in the rear of the passenger cabin. The purser informed the flight crew about the smoke, the flight crew declared emergency and returned to London Heathrow.

During the approach the smoke cleared, the airplane landed safely on runway 09R, taxied to the ramp on its own and shut down normally. All 97 Passengers and crew disembarked normally. An inspection by fire brigades did not reveal any trace of fire.

A subsequent examination of the airplane by TAP, including the entire cabin, galleys, ovens, toilets, cabin lights, engines and APU, did not find any cause of the smoke either.
