Normality has been been restored at Norman Manley International Airport, after flights into and out of the airport were suspended this afternoon.

This, after the runway was closed due to an incident just after 2:00 this afternoon.

Acting President of the Airports Authority of Jamaica, Alfred McDonald, says a Jamaica Defence Force aircraft malfunctioned after it landed on the runway.

The incident caused several flights to be diverted to the Sangster International airport in Montego Bay, St James.

Mr. McDonald says he wouldn’t describe what happened to the JDF helicopter as a crash landing.
