A London flight to Poland carrying mainly ultra-Orthodox Jewish passengers said to be on a pilgrimage to the grave of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk had to make an emergency landing in Amsterdam on Sunday.

The Titan Airways flight was en route from Stansted London to Rzeszow in Poland when the cabin lost pressure and the plane sent out a mayday call, landing safely Sunday morning at Schipol Airport in the Dutch capital, according to British media.

The passengers were seen in pictures and videos from aboard the flight wearing oxygen masks, praying and singing singing Ani Ma’amin, or “I believe” in Hebrew.

None of the 272 passengers and crew was injured in the incident.
