JetBlue flight en route to St. Lucia makes emergency landing in Bermuda

Bermuda News: On Friday, August 25 JetBlue flight #881 on its way to Saint Lucia after departing from the JFK International Airport in New York made an emergency landing in Bermuda.

A Skyport spokesperson said, “A JetBlue flight enroute to St. Lucia was diverted to Bermuda this afternoon.

“The aircraft landed at 12:15pm as a result of the pilot reporting a detector light going off, indicating smoke in the cabin. The plane was an AirBus A321 from New York heading to St. Lucia with 202 passengers on board.”

“A Skyport Airport Duty Officer said: “Once the aircraft landed, it was inspected by the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service [BFRS], who did not find evidence of smoke or fire.

“Passengers departed the aircraft and waited in the international lounge while the aircraft underwent an inspection. The mechanical issue was resolved and the passengers reboarded the aircraft at 2:05pm.”

“The aircraft, flight B6881, refueled and departed for St. Lucia without further incident”, the spokesperson confirmed.

    Never pray more than you can work for someting! It was not god landing the aircraft, it was the Pilot who went to school. I’m so bored of Looshians not working, not learning, not taking respnsability…. but than run to God asking for mercy. Our God wants us to work hard, to learn, to give a future to our Kids. Not to drink rum, smoke weed instead of working, robbing, not to teach kids the value of life (dogs, all animals and human).

      At the end of it all. God was in control. God gave the teacher knowledge to impart to the student who is now a pilot who landed the plane safely.
