An Airbus A320 operated by JetBlue Airways diverted to LF Wade International airport in Bermuda on 29 December due to a maintenance issue.

The aircraft was on a scheduled flight from Aruba to Boston. JetBlue says pilots diverted to Bermuda after they received an indication of possible smoke in the aft cargo compartment.

The aircraft remained in Bermuda for about two hours while maintenance inspected and cleared the aircraft.

JetBlue says 63 passengers were onboard the Airbus narrowbody.
