Emergency landing at Philadelphia airport delays flights

Published on : Friday, April 29, 2016

aeroplaneFlights from Philadelphia’s airport continued to get delayed on Friday morning, after an American Eagle flight from Richmond, Va was forced to make an emergency landing.
Piedmont Airlines flight 4801, landed safely at 8:15 a.m. after the pilot reported smoke in the cabin, said Ross Feinstein, an American spokesman. The Embraer E145 had 50 passengers and four crew members on board.

 
However, the airline is taking care of passengers and crew, and finding connecting flights for them, whenever necessary.

 
“All passengers and crew were evacuated shortly after landing,” Feinstein said. “One passenger was checked by medical personnel and released at the airport.”

 
The Federal Aviation Administration said at 10 a.m. that departing flights were holding up to 90 minutes at their gates and the delays were increasing. However, arrival delays were less than 15 minutes at that point, FAA said.
