A suspicious package alert forces passengers to disembark from a Miami plane
A JetBlue airliner with more than 140 people on board had to be evacuated at the Miami airport. due to a tip-off about a suspicious package received while preparing for take-offairport authorities said Tuesday. Greg Chin, director of communications at the airport, confirmed that a tip was received that triggered the alarm, so a fire squad specialized in handling explosives was sent to check the aircraft bound for New York.
Chin did not report whether firefighters found anything on the plane. or it was all a false alarm, but it seems it was the latter because the plane finally flew to its destination, New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, where it arrived three hours late, according to WSVN.
This television outlet indicated that JetBlue Flight 2892 was taxiing on the runway Monday night preparing for takeoff when authorities received the call about a possible threat related to a suspicious package.
Once the march was stopped, the 144 passengers of JetBlue flight 2892 were disembarked. bound for New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, were brought into the terminal. The aircraft was taken to an area away from the buildings so that authorities could conduct an inspection. The case is under investigation.
