On Friday, 6 July 2012, an Avro RJ100 aircraft, registration SE-DST, took off from the Malmö-Sturup (ESMS) Airport in Sweden at 15:45 en route to Palma de Mallorca (LEPA) in Spain. There were 101 passengers, 2 flight crew and 3 flight attendants onboard.
While descending into the Palma de Mallorca Airport, the first officer's upper' EFIS display, the PFD (primary flight display), went blank. The first officer selected the lower EFIS display, the ND (navigation display), to compact mode. The first officer then noticed a smell of electrical smoke, after which the presence of smoke was confirmed. They turned off the first officer's EFIS system and donned their oxygen masks. They declared an emergency and were given landing priority. During the remainder of the descent, the smoke cleared and the crew removed their oxygen masks. Neither the smell nor the smoke entered the passenger cabin.
The landing was uneventful and the crew, assessing that the emergency situation was over, decided not to do an emergency evacuation and to continue taxiing to their parking stand. The passengers disembarked normally and there were no injuries.

The incident was likely caused by the presence of water in the first officer's PFD unit due to improper placement of an insulation blanket that allowed condensed water to drip onto the unit.
