A flight of JetBlue that was travelling from John F. Kennedy Airport to Buffalo was compelled to go for an emergency landing at JFK a short while after it had taken off, on account of an ‘odor’ in the plane’s cockpit.
The flight 2802 had taken off at 6.48 a.m. according to its schedule.
Then, it landed safely back on the tarmac after a short while after cockpit fumes were reported by its crew members.
However, none of the passengers and crew members have been injured due to the emergency landing. The flight tracker of JetBlue asserted that the flight had arrived in Buffalo around 10.39 a.m., about three hours later than it was scheduled.
JetBlue mentioned in an official statement that JetBlue flight had completed an air return a short while after its take off after there had been some reports indicating an odor inside the cockpit of the Embraer 190. The flight thereafter landed safely and the passengers were accommodated in an alternative aircraft.
A spokesperson with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that the incident is currently being investigated.
