An airplane with Icelandair was forced to make an emergency landing in Quebec late Friday night.

Officials from Icelandair have since confirmed that the flight was diverted.

A passenger on board Flight FI688 tweeted an image from the main cabin, saying the plane was forced to land in Quebec, Canada.

The Icelandair aircraft was flying from Florida to Iceland with 155 passengers and seven crew onboard.


According to flightaware.com, the plane was a Boeing 757-200 aircraft, and it landed at approximately 10:20 p.m.

Bagotville, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) north of Quebec, does not normally handle global flights, but Hove said Canadian immigration officers were sent onto the plane to clear the passengers.

"(The pilot) didn't tell us what happened until we got on the ground", he said.

He said all passengers are safe and emergency crews responded. "One of the cockpit windows was shattered".
