Boston-bound JetBlue flight diverted after evacuation slide opens

MIAMI (Reuters) - A JetBlue flight traveling from Fort Myers, Florida to Boston, was diverted to Orlando on Wednesday after an evacuation slide partially opened inside the plane, an airline spokesman said.

JetBlue Airways Spokesman Anders Lindstrom said no major injuries were reported on flight 1266, which departed Ft. Myers carrying 77 passengers and crew members.

The plane landed safely at the Orlando International Airport at 3:41 p.m. EST (2041 GMT), said Carolyn Fennell, an airport spokeswoman.

It was not immediately clear what caused the evacuation slide to deploy, Lindstrom added.
