An El Al passenger plane en route to Tel Aviv from Madrid, Spain diverted from its scheduled route shortly after takeoff Wednesday afternoon.
El Al LY-396 was traveling with 94 people on board when it diverted to Athens after the crew reported fumes originating from a galley.
The Boeing 737-900 aircraft landed safely on the runway at Athens International Airport about 18 minutes later, according to a report on The Aviation Herald website.
The aircraft remained on the ground for about three hours, then continued the journey. It was estimated to reach Tel Aviv with a delay of about four hours.Hana Levi Julian
