Thomas Cook jet heading for UK makes emergency landing in Bermuda
Wednesday 01 May 2013
A charter passenger jet made an emergency landing Tuesday in Bermuda after the captain reported a possible fire in the cabin, officials in the British island territory said.
Thomas Cook Airlines Flight 149 landed safely in Hamilton and the passengers and crew were safely evacuated, said Lt. Jay Donawa, a spokesman for the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service.
"No injuries were reported and there was no fire on board when the aircraft landed," Donawa said.
The A330 aircraft had 338 passengers and was traveling from Cancun, Mexico, to Manchester, England, when the captain declared an emergency about 8.20 p.m. and diverted to Bermuda. The craft landed about 40 minutes later with emergency personnel waiting.
