Airbus A320: Incident occurred January 07, 2022 at San Jose International Airport (KSJC), Santa Clara County, California

Two flight attendants on a flight to San Jose were taken to a hospital upon landing Friday after crew members reported a mysterious odor in the plane’s rear galley, officials said.

As Alaska Airlines Flight 338 from Seattle was making its descent toward Mineta San Jose International Airport around 10 a.m., flight attendants reported a “strong chemical smell” in the back of the plane, said Cailee Olson, a media relations manager for Alaska Airlines.

When the plane landed, two of the flight attendants were evaluated by EMTs and taken to a local hospital, Olson said. It wasn’t immediately clear what their symptoms were or where the odor came from.

The Airbus A320 was carrying 44 passengers and five crew members. No passengers reported any discomfort or illness from the odor, Olson said.

The plane was removed from service and was being inspected by maintenance workers, Olson said.
