Jet Blue Makes Emergency Landing

On Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 5:28pm, Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service Emergency Dispatch Center received a call from the Skyport Airport Duty Officer, Ms. Pamela Brockington. Ms. Brockington stated that “a JetBlue Airbus 1468 on its way to John F. Kennedy Airport, New York from Punta Cana, Dominican Republic out of an abundance of caution made an emergency landing in Bermuda after a cockpit indicator identified a potential issue in the cargo compartment.”

Acting Lieutenant Russann Francis reported the Airbus 321 was reported to carrying  207 persons and 17,000 pounds of fuel remaining on board. Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service (BFRS) stood by on scene with 7 vehicles and 15 personnel as the flight landed safely in Bermuda at 6:08pm local time.

BFRS personnel assisted with the evacuation of passengers and carried out a thorough inspection for signs of fire in the cargo hold of the aircraft.

TNN understands a recovery flight has picked up our customers in Bermuda and will complete their travels to New York City.
