Published on : Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Air BerlinAn aircraft of Air Berlin made an emergency landing at Daytona International Airport around 3 p.m. on Saturday. There were 275 passengers on board the plane and it was travelling from Germany.

 

The plane was headed for Cancun.

 

During this time, the cockpit of the plane was filled with smoke. This compelled the plane’s pilot to land in Daytona Beach, as per the public information officer with Daytona International Airport named Jay Cassens.

 

Cassens also said that the flight was not travelling for the United States and this has made things a bit complicated when they had reached there.

 

The passengers were not permitted to leave customs due to the fact that none of them possessed U.S. visas. Cassen also said that the airport extended it support to cooperate with the passengers of this flight. He also specified that the staff members had to run to and fro out to convenience stores, collecting pizza and going to Publix in order to get the food items with an aim to make the passengers comfortable.

 

He then said that multiple efforts to send replacement planes failed until Sunday afternoon when the passengers were capable of boarding the American Airlines flight that was heading to Cancun.

 

The luggage of the passengers had to stay behind on the Air Berlin plane, since the plane lacked the equipment necessary for unloading their bags.
