JetBlue flight bound for Raleigh-Durham diverts back to Logan for minor maintenance issue

A maintenance issue prompted a JetBlue flight bound for Raleigh-Durham to turn back to Boston Logan International Airport early this afternoon, according to an airline spokesman.

The flight crew discovered a “vibration issue’’ on the aircraft shortly after its 12:04 p.m. take-off, according to JetBlue spokesman Rick Clark, and the pilots diverted the plane back to Logan.

“The flight returned out of an abundance of caution,’’ Clark said.

The situation was not serious and no injuries were reported, Clark said.

The flight landed just after noon, Clark said. Passengers boarded another plane for the JetBlue flight, number 1083. That plane was scheduled to depart Boston at 1:15 p.m.


The initial flight had been scheduled to take off from Boston at 11:17 a.m. and land in North Carolina at 3:20 p.m.

MassPort, which operates Logan Airport, deferred all questions to JetBlue.
