A JetBlue plane made an emergency landing at Orlando International Airport on Wednesday morning after reports of smoke in the cargo area.

Flight 354 was headed to the New York JFK airport from Palm Beach International when it made an emergency landing just before 11 a.m., according to OIA officials.

The plane landed safely at OIA and all passengers were taken off of the plane.

JetBlue released a statement to Local 6, saying the captain of the flight, “elected to divert to Orlando (MCO) due to a mechanical indication in the cockpit. Out of an abundance of caution, emergency vehicles met the aircraft upon landing.”

JetBlue also said the aircraft is currently being inspected.
