250px-Delta_logo.svgDelta Airlines Flight 886 had to make an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport, due to a fault in plane’s hydraulic system.

The plane was en route from Atlanta to LaGuardia Airport. However, as the fault was detected, it was diverted to the JFK airport.

The airline told that the decision of diversion was made because the JFK airport has longer runways than the LaGuardia Airport.

The McDonald Douglas MD8 aircraft made a safe landing at about 9pm on Wednesday, April 2. But the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey told that while taxiing to the terminal, it skidded off the taxi way, on to the grassy area.
There were 118 passengers and 5 crew members on board. None of them was injured.
