September 10, 2019

 

The captain of a Cayman Airways flight bound for New York City was forced to make an emergency landing in Orlando on Sunday afternoon after smoke was detected in one of the jet’s cargo holds.

According to a news release from Cayman Airways, flight KX792 from Grand Cayman to JFK International Airport was diverted to Orlando International Airport “following a smoke indication in one of its cargo holds”.

Flight KX792 departed Grand Cayman at 3:30 p.m. for New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport before diverting to Orlando International Airport, where it landed at 6:17 p.m., after a smoke indicator light came on showing smoke in one of the cargo holds.

The jet deployed emergency slides on the runway “with the uncertainty of what was causing the indication,” according to Cayman Airways.

Cayman Airways said there is no evidence there was actually ever smoke in the cargo hold.

There were 103 passengers and five crew members on board.
