Jet lands at airport after experiencing difficulties

A private jet flying over Barbados this morning reportedly developed technical difficulties and had to make an emergency landing.

The aircraft, which had nine people on board, landed safely just before noon.

Corporate Communications Specialist at the Grantley Adams International Airport Keith Goddard told Barbados TODAY the airport received a call this morning from the pilot of the aircraft.

My understanding is that [the plane] developed some technical difficulties and requested to land. We received that call about 11 o’clock. The aircraft circled to dump fuel,” he said.

After an assessment of conditions, permission was granted and the aircraft landed without incident.

Goddard opted not to say where the jet was travelling from or where it was heading.

Emergency teams, including from the Barbados Defence Force, were put on standby.
