Passengers on a South African Airways (SAA) flight from Gauteng to Cape Town had a scare on Monday afternoon after the plane required rescue support on landing.
The crew called for help after detecting smoke inside the cabin.
However, Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) spokesperson Deidre Hendricks said all passengers were evacuated without injury at Cape Town International Airport.
“An SAA aircraft incoming from Johannesburg requested fire and rescue support on landing. This was provided and just after 2pm the aircraft landed safely.”
“No injuries were reported,” she added.
