A British Airways flight that crashed during landing on Sunday in the Caribbean is being treated by a British Airways aviation lawyer after passengers left the cabin, authorities said.
The Airbus A320, which was returning from an international flight to Heathrow, was forced to make an emergency landing in the Dominican Republic when the plane’s engines failed.
In a statement, the Royal Caribbean airline said that a British Airline flight from the Bahamas to Havana was diverted to the Dominican capital because of a “medical emergency”.
The airline said the plane was carrying around 200 passengers and crew and had been carrying approximately 1,000 passengers and 12 crew members when it was diverted.
A Royal Caribbean spokesman told CNN that passengers on board the flight, including two children, had not been taken to a hospital but were receiving treatment in a local hospital.
According to the statement, Royal Caribbean Flight 787 had been travelling from Jamaica to Havana and landed in Havana International Airport, which is located on the eastern edge of the island of Cuba.
After making an emergency stopover in Havana, the plane landed in the capital of the Dominican republic, the statement said.
The British Airways spokesman added that the aircraft had been diverted to Havana due to a medical emergency.
British Airways said it was aware of the incident and is co-operating with the authorities.
Royal Caribbean said it would take immediate action against those responsible for the accident.
It said that Royal Caribbean’s crew, who were on the flight as part of their medical training, had left the aircraft in good health.
This is a developing story.
