A Frontier Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing yesterday because of an odor-related event. Flight 91559 was carrying 102 people including passengers and crew when fumes began to waft through the plane leading the crew to decide to make an emergency landing at the nearest airport.
The Orlando-bound flight originated out of Norfolk, but it conducted an emergency landing in Raleigh-Durham International Airport after noxious fumes forced the plane down. Upon landing, the emergency slides were deployed and passengers were evacuated on the taxiway.
A Fox News report indicated that none of the 102 people on board were injured and that all were rebooked on later flights to their final destinations.
