RAW VIDEO: WestJet flight makes emergency landing in Abbotsford

Emergency crews were called to Abbotsford International Airport on Friday night after a WestJet flight with 93 passengers on board had a problem with its flaps.

The Boeing 737, en route from Toronto to Kelowna, landed in Abbotsford at about 10:15 p.m. without incident.

WestJet spokesperson Robert Palmer said the flaps were stuck in a partially deployed position. The pilot decided to divert to Abbotsford because it has a longer runway.

The plane was taken out of service, and passengers were placed on another plane, which departed for Kelowna at about 12:15 a.m.

The cause is under investigation.
