A JetBlue plane heading to Boston was diverted to Buffalo Wednesday morning because of an "odor of smoke in the cockpit," the airline said in a statement to NBC News.
Flight #1012 from O'Hare was heading to Boston Logan International Airport, but was diverted to Buffalo Niagara International Airport "out of an abundance of caution," JetBlue spokesman Christopher Lambert said.
The aircraft was able to land safely and is being inspected, Lambert said. Customers are being directed to other flights.
The plane was carrying 54 passengers and four crew members, authorities told Buffalo News.
“Our airport firefighters responded but nobody was hurt, and to my understanding, no one required hospital treatment,” Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority spokesman C. Douglas Hartmayer told the publication.
