"JetBlue flight #1706 from Santo Domingo, D.R. to Orlando, Fla. diverted to Nassau, Bahamas when the crew reported a system alert of possible smoke in a cargo hold," JetBlue said in a statement to News 6.
According to officials, the airplane landed safely at 10:15 a.m. local time and customers began to deplane normally by using air stairs.
"Following consultations with the airport fire department that met the aircraft and with safety top of mind, the captain elected to evacuate the final three dozen customers and crewmembers via slides," JetBlue added. ■
