Freebird Europe flight FH9105, an Airbus A320, landed on runway 21 at Maastricht Airport with one engine on idle power.
The flight crew had selected idle power on engine no.2 (CFMI CFM56-5B4/P) due to drop in oil quantity while in German airspace. The flight reported the oil level indication had dropped from 16 quarts to 3 quarts.
A normal landing was made at 11:07 UTC. The flight crew then shut down the engines on the runway and were towed to the apron.

The aircraft operated on a ferry flight from Bacau, Romania. This was the first flight after having arrived at Bacau on 30 October 2020.
