Passenger evaluated following medical call at Bradley Airport


WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH) — Bradley International Airport is on high alert after a coronavirus scare Saturday.

The Spirit Airlines flight landed just before noon Saturday. That’s when aircraft rescue and fire fighting crews responded to a medical call onboard.

The flight was coming in from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We’re told a woman in her 20s in the flight was experiencing mild flu-like symptoms.

An airport representative says, “In conjunction with established airport protocols and in consultation with DPH officials, the passenger was evaluated.”

After evaluation, it was determined that the passenger did not require further medical attention. However, at the passenger’s request, the passenger was transported to a nearby hospital.

The flight was eventually cleared by officials the passengers were able to de-plane and collect their bags before leaving.
