An Air Canada jet that declared an emergency while flying from Toronto to St. John’s, Newfoundland, because of a report of smoke has landed safely at Maine’s Bangor International Airport.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters says the pilot decided to divert Flight 692 because of a report of smoke in the cabin.
The Embraer E190 touched down in Bangor on Monday afternoon. Emergency workers determined there was no fire but there was an “electrical odor” in the cabin.
Air Canada’s version of the E190 aircraft is configured for 97 passengers. Air Canada is bringing in a replacement plane to get the passengers to their destination.
