An Aerolineas Estelar flight, on its way from Cuba to Venezuela, had to make an emergency landing at the Norman Manley International Airport, Kingston, Jamaica, in the afternoon of September 6.
According to the authorities, the reason of emergency landing was an oil leak in the aircraft.
The plane landed uneventfully and no one was hurt.
Director General of the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority, Leroy Lindsay said the aircraft will remain in Jamaica until the cause of the leak is determined. “They’ll be doing their investigations into what may have caused this oil leak and when they discover it, they will have to fix it and make sure it’s working before it is released. Our people from the flight safety division of the JCAA will have to be convinced that the aircraft is in air worthiness condition to depart,” he said.
The passengers were booked in alternate flights to Venezuela.
