A passenger on Friday's Dublin to Croatia flight said on Facebook that the air went cold, oxygen masks dropped, and there was a "dive of 3,000 metres in less than one minute".

"We get on the plane, we're flying and next of all the oxygen mask comes down, we're left in darkness for 15 minutes, there's no reassurance just people shouting "emergency, emergency"". It said that the aircraft had landed "normally".

There was a newborn baby and children on the flight, people are screaming and we don't know what's going on for fifteen minutes.

Another passenger, Sarah McGarry, who was travelling to Zadar for a holiday with her boyfriend, told The Irish Times that her eardrum burst during the descent. "Then finally we're told that we're going to Germany".

Passengers were able to board a different flight to Zadar the yesterday morning.

More than 30 passengers were injured with some reports of passengers bleeding from their ears.

The plane made an emergency landing at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport in Germany.

Some passengers praised those the pilots for an "excellent job" handling the emergency situation, Britain's The Guardian reported.

Passengers are expected to board a replacement aircraft to Zadar on Saturday morning, having received refreshment vouchers and hotel accommodation. "Cutting costs and more profit for Ryanair all at the expense of customer safety", she concluded.

German air accident investigator BFU, responsible for investigating the incident, said its team was heading to Frankfurt-Hahn airport to secure the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, and to interview crew and passengers.

"Ryanair sincerely apologised for any inconvenience", added the spokesperson.
