Passengers and crew were evacuated from a Delta Airlines flight at Logan International Airport today after a problem occurred with the plane before takeoff.
Flight 2101 was bound for Atlanta, Ga. The 143 passengers and six crew members on board were uninjured. They deplaned without the use of any emergency equipment and were bused back to the terminal, Massachusetts Port Authority spokesman Matt Brelis said.
“All passengers are safe, the situation is currently being handled,” airport officials said in a tweet.
The plane remains on the airfield and Massport fire trucks have responded.
“The airline and authorities will investigate,” airport officials said in a tweet.
No further information about the nature of the problem was immediately available.Todd Feathers can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter at @ToddFeathers.
