The MD-88, with a crew of five and 144 passengers on board, was diverted to Logan.

The plane landed safely and passengers were safely deplaned, said Matthew Brelis, Massport spokesman.

The passengers were bused to Terminal A, where Delta made arrangements for them to continue their journey, according to Delta’s website.

“Delta is reaccomodating customers on other flights while technicians examine the aircraft,’’ Durrant said in the statement. “Safety is always Delta’s top priority.”

Brelis said there was no impact on other flight operations at Logan.
