Aeroflot flight SU2097, an Airbus A320-214, diverted to Budapest after smoke appeared in the front galley 5 minutes after take-off from Belgrade. The flight attendants were unable to identify the exact origin of the smoke. The captain decided to make an emergency landing at Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport (LHBP). There were no injuries during the incident.

The Investigation Committee of the KBSZ identified the corrosion of the heated floor panel in the first kitchen as the cause of the incident, which caused a short circuit in the heating element.
