UPDATE 2-Fly Jamaica flight makes emergency landing in Guyana, six hurt
The plane had 118 passengers, two infants and eight crew members on board. Six passengers suffered nonlife-threatening injuries when the plane landed about 45 minutes after it departed Cheddi Jagan International Airport at about 2 a.m. local time (0600 GMT), they said.
The airline said it was providing local assistance.
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is leading an investigation and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, which automatically assists with inquiries under international rules, was notified, officials said.
Boeing Co is looking into the incident, a spokesman said.
Last week, Indonesian airliner Lion Air flight JT610, an almost new Boeing 737 MAX 8, crashed into the sea soon after taking off from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board. (Reporting by Brendan O'Brien and Tracy Rucinski; Editing by Bernadette Baum and Jeffrey Benkoe)
