An American Airlines flight from Spain diverted to Bermuda today [July 18] with an ill passenger on board.

The aircraft arrived at LF Wade International Airport at 2.05pm this afternoon with 288 passengers on board, including a female passenger who needed immediate medical assistance. The flight was from Madrid en route to Miami.

A Skyport Airport Duty Officer said, “The 67-year-old woman had a pre-existing medical condition and was treated on board the aircraft by a doctor before it landed in Bermuda.
