Spirit Airlines flight faces near disaster after takeoff from Jamaica (PC – Facebook)

A Spirit Airlines flight NK270 faced serious emergency after taking off from Sangster International Airport in Jamaica. Passengers who were bound for Fort Lauderdale in United States, got the scare of their lives on Sunday afternoon as they braced themselves for potentially crashing into the sea. 

According to the information, the flight faced issues soon after takeoff. A passenger said that the pilot announced and asked everyone to prepare for a water landing and the highest emergency activated at the Montego Bay, Jamaica. 

The passengers and the crew members were lucky enough that the aircraft landed without incident or injury but the shock that some passengers went through is said to remain with them for a long time. 

One of the passengers said that they were told that the aircraft had lost pressure, but eventually, they got a new aircraft, which they flew to the USA. 

The sources also revealed that the flight crew was equally in panic mode, and so the travelers became equally extremely nervous, which caused a panic situation aboard the flight. 

Meanwhile, the netizens have reacted to the situation and lauded the pilot for safe landing amid a serious emergency. 

“Plane emergencies are happening regularly of late, and I was thinking about Jamaica earlier today. Glad everything worked out safely,” wrote a user named Opal Williams, while another user named Trevor said, “No lives were lost. That’s a win in my book. These companies need to start being extra careful and run a tight ship when it comes to maintenance.”

The Spirit Airline is yet to comment on the incident but it is reported that all the passengers and crew aboard the flight safe. This airline is a major American ultra-low cost airline which is headquartered in Florida. It operates scheduled flights throughout the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America and is known for offering top notch services to the passengers.
