Fly Jamaica flight destined for Toronto suffers accident on landing

The Fly Jamaica Airways flight OJ 256 crashed at Georgetown Cheddi Jagan with 120 passengers including two infants on board.

The Fly Jamaica plane was 20 minutes into a flight from Georgetown, Guyana, to Toronto when the pilot indicated there were problems with the Boeing 757's hydraulic system.

None of the injuries are life-threatening.

"There were (some people) injured because of coming down the slide or not getting off the flight fast enough, so the people behind them were kicking them", he told Canada's public broadcaster CBC.

The injured received treatment at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre.

But while airline officials reported two of the 128 people on the plane were taken to hospital as a precaution, Global Affairs said all Canadians on board were believed to be unhurt.

As such, preparations were made for an emergency landing but the Pilot was unable to get the aircraft to an absolute stop before the end of the runway.

Fly Jamaica is an airline headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica and commenced operations in 2013.

The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is leading an investigation and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, which automatically assists with inquiries under worldwide rules, was notified, officials said.

"We are making alternative arrangements to fly out the passengers", he said.

"We are providing local assistance and will release further information as soon as it is available".
