Flight Toronto-Winnipeg grounded due to smoke

Nowadays everyone takes flights. Even the people, who afraid of planes, still fly, because it is the safest and fastest way to travel, sometimes, though, the incidents happen. The Air Canada flight returned to Toronto on Wednesday morning, January 2nd after, according to the airline, there were "reports of an unusual smell of melting plastic" on the plane.

Air Canada reported that the smell was in the “rear of the aircraft”. The plane, assigned to Winnipeg Airport, landed at Pearson Airport shortly after takeoff.

“The aircraft was landed by the fire and emergency services as a precautionary measure. It landed without incident”, said an airport spokesman.

“The aircraft landed normally but as additional precaution customers were asked to deplane immediately and return afterward to collect carry-on baggage. The customers will be placed on a new aircraft that will leave early this afternoon,” said a spokesperson.

There were 126 passengers on board, and they all had to take off on another plane on Wednesday afternoon. Thankfully, no injuries were reported, all passengers safely reached their destination. Everyone got back home safely and that is the most important thing!
