Jetliner makes emergency landing in Ottawa

A charter flight to Cuba with 170 passengers onboard made an emergency landing at the Ottawa airport on Friday shortly after taking off, an official told AFP.

The Sunwing flight was en route to Varadero, Cuba. It left the Canadian capital at 6:32 a.m. local time (1032 GMT) but abruptly turned around 20 minutes later, said Krista Kealey, a spokeswoman for the Ottawa airport.

Public broadcaster CBC said smoke had filled the cockpit, but Kealey said there was no fire.

Authorities were reportedly checking the brakes on the Boeing 737-800 while passengers eager to leave behind snow in Ottawa for sunny Cuba were rebooked on other flights.
