A JetBlue flight headed for Boston experienced a potential mechanical issue Monday night, but the aircraft landed safely at Logan Airport, and no one was injured, according to airport and airline officials.

Out of an abundance of caution, JetBlue flight 2896 from Punta Cana to Boston requested priority handling on arrival into Boston due to an indication of a potential hydraulic issue, an airline spokesperson told NBC10 Boston. The flight landed safely just before 9 p.m. and customers deplaned normally.
