An Eva Air flight made an emergency landing at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) in Manila (Philippines) when the pilot reported smoke in the cockpit.

Eva Air flight 226 (a Boeing 777) was headed to Singapore from Taipei, Taiwan on Wednesday on an afternoon flight when the incident occurred.

The pilot originally called in an emergency landing at 4:16:

‘“But at 4:48 p.m., the pilot shifted or downgraded its request from Plan 2 (emergency landing) to Plan 3, which means that the aircraft has reported experiencing difficulty but has not yet requested for an emergency landing.. It means all emergency personnel are just on standby,” Agustin said, adding that there were no reported injuries during the incident.’

The aircraft landed safely in a remote area of the airport at 4:50 PM.
