On September 13, 2016 a Boeing 757-200 of Thomson Airways operating flight TOM-2200 from Manchester to Skiathos diverted to Athens due technical problem with flaps.

The flight decent till 4.000 feet but since the crew notice a problem with the flaps decide to go at Athens airport instead of continue the approach to the very short (for a B757) Skiathos runway.

The aircraft perform a normal landing at Athens and after two hours and necessary checks departed to Skiathos.

The aircraft was G-OOBP with 226 persons (pax and crew) on board.
