Flight 262

Our Flight 262 from Long Beach to Sacramento, with 86 customers and a crew of five, evacuated via slides this afternoon upon landing at Sacramento International Airport. The flight, an Airbus A320, landed shortly before 1 p.m. Pacific time.

Initial reports indicate that upon landing in Sacramento, there was a brake fire, and the crew elected to evacuate the aircraft out of an abundance of caution.  The airport fire department reported immediately to the aircraft and emergency response personnel are on-site to assist. Minor injuries have been reported and those customers have been transported to local hospitals. Our local Care Team has been dispatched to ensure the comfort of all our customers.

We will get back to you with more as soon as we have additional information.

Update (5 p.m. Pacific): The incident is currently under investigation with the NTSB and FAA.
