A Corendon Airlines Europe Boeing 737-800, registration 9H-TJE performing flight XR-2271 from Nuremberg (Germany) to Palma Mallorca,SP (Spain) with 203 people on board, was enroute at FL330 about 70nm south of Basel (Switzerland)/Mulhouse (France) when the crew initiated an emergency descent due to the loss of cabin pressure. The aircraft levelled off at FL100 about 7 minutes later (average rate of descent about 3300 fpm), and landed safely on Basel's runway 15 about 25 minutes after leaving FL330.
