A JetBlue flight from New York to Fort Lauderdale makes an emergency landing in South Carolina after crew reports smoke in cockpit.
The flight 913 of JetBlue Airways with 98 passengers and 4 crewmembers on board was on the route from Westchester County Airport (HPN) to Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport (FLL) last Friday, when the crew reported smoke in the cockpit.
The aircraft, an Embraer E190, landed at Charleston International Airport, in South Carolina, around 10:30 a.m. and the passengers were evacuated by emergency chutes and were taken by bus to the terminal. No injuries were reported.
Passengers were provided with pizza, and later were to be accommodated on other flights.
The Federal Administration Aviation says its investigation is ongoing.
