STEWART AIRPORT — As of Friday afternoon, U.S. Airways couldn’t say what caused the smoky conditions that forced a flight from Stewart International Airport to Philadelphia to make an unscheduled landing on Christmas.
Flight 4558 left Stewart at 4:25 p.m. Thursday but an hour later was diverted to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport because of a report of smoke in the cockpit.
None of the 32 passengers and three crew members on board reported needing medical attention, said U.S. Airways spokesman Derek R. Hanna. The passengers were accommodated on other flights.
