Delta Air Lines flight from N.H. diverted to Logan; passengers and crew safely evacuated, Massport says

A Delta Air Lines flight from Manchester, N.H., was safely diverted to Logan Airport this morning, officials said.

Flight 1941 departed the Manchester airport at 7:15 a.m. and was scheduled to fly to Atlanta. But shortly after the plane became airborne, an apparent mechanical problem was discovered on the MD-90 aircraft, and the crew diverted it to Boston, officials said.

The passengers were sent to Terminal A where Delta is currently seeking to restart their journey, according to Delta’s website.
