The airport had received an emergency call around 11.15 a.m. on Wednesday morning, according to Louise Beaulieu, who is the general manager of the airport where it made the landing. It is located at a distance of nearly 530 kilometres north of Montreal.
Beaulieu said that the plane had to go for the emergency landing owing to a cracked windscreen.
The spokesperson mentioned that it had landed around 11.45 a.m. and everything was absolutely normal.
The emergency protocol procedures were strictly maintained and the paramedics, fire department and airport management were mobilized. The plane had left Val-d’Or earlier on Wednesday on its way to the Cree community of Waskaganish.
