Jet carrying 300 passengers diverted to Labrador because of smoke in cockpit


HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, N.L. (CP) - An Egyptair passenger flight carrying more than 300 people was diverted to a Labrador airport Monday after smoke was detected in the cockpit.

The Boeing 777 that departed from Cairo for New York had to make an emergency landing in Goose Bay, said Kevin Aylward, CEO of Goose Bay Airport Corp.

The plane landed safely and maintenance crews quickly repaired it, Aylward said.

No fire was found and no one aboard was injured, he added.

"Any detection of smoke and the airlines are automatically landing at the first airport that they can land at," Aylward said in an interview.

"In a situation like that, the response that the airlines have taken is that they just play it safe."

The flight was expected to resume its trip to New York later Monday.

Transport Canada was called in to investigate, Aylward said.


"Those Who Don't Learn From The Past Are Doomed To Repeat It."

It would be interesting to know what caused the smoke? So often, it's hard to find any follow-up on these incidents. Thanks for posting it Murray.
