Following the alarm, pilots of the Boeing 737-8 performed an emergency landing at Zagreb Airport and all passengers were evacuated.
According to a statement by the airline, the smoke alarm in the cargo hold was activated after an electronic cigarette in one of the passenger's luggage caught on fire.
