A Delta flight from Amsterdam to Seattle had to make an emergency landing at the Iqaluit Airport in Canada today.
The airfield is on the coast of Northeast Canada, just across Davis Strait from Southern Greenland.
According to Delta, Flight 233 encountered a mechanical issue and was diverted to Iqaluit, Nanavut, Canda, for a technical evaluation. The Airbus A330 landed safely.
Two hundred thirty-five passengers disembarked from the plane and were taken by school bus to the Iqaluit cadet hall, according to the Nunatsiaq News. Passengers are waiting for a replacement plane from Atlanta, and their arrival in Seattle has been delayed to 11 p.m., Delta said.
