An Air Dolomiti Embraer ERJ-195, registration I-ADJS performing flight EN-8061 from Graz (Austria) to Frankfurt/Main (Germany), was climbing out of Graz's runway 17C when the crew stopped the climb at FL180. The aircraft returned to Graz for a safe landing on runway 35C about 25 minutes after departure.

A passenger reported there was a burning odour on board already before engine start but went away after engine start after a brief smell of Kerosene. About 30 seconds after becoming airborne the smell re-occurred and became stronger, the cabin became slightly foggy. Suddenly there was a noise like a kind of a musical note similiar to an untied ballon deflating, presumable some hydraulic or pneumatic leak, about 2-3 minutes later the crew announced they were returning to Graz. Following landing back in Graz the passengers were told, that medics would check all of them for inhalation of unknown gasses, then changed to state only people feeling unwell would be checked.

The occurrence aircraft is still on the ground in Graz about 33 hours after landing back.
