Manchester flight diverted to Boston after cabin fumes, smoke reported


MANCHESTER - A Delta flight out of the Manchester airport Friday morning was diverted to Logan International Airport in Boston after a report of possible fumes or smoke inside the cabin, an airport official said.

Flight 1941, a 142-seat McDonnell Douglas MD-88 aircraft, left Manchester-Boston Regional Airport about 7:15 a.m. for Atlanta, according to Deputy Airport Director J. Brian O'Neill.

After the report was made of possible fumes or smoke, the plane was diverted to Logan where it landed safely. The unscheduled landing, he said, was done as a precaution.

The passengers were rebooked on other flights to Atlanta, according to O'Neill.
