DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A flight traveling from Jamaica to Cleveland was diverted to Miami International Airport because of a forward cargo compartment smoke indication in the cockpit, according to Swift Air.

The Boeing 737-300 was met with airport rescue services which escorted the aircraft to the passenger terminal where all passengers were disembarked normally.

Passengers are being provided with information and prompt handling to accommodate them onward to Cleveland with a replacement aircraft.

A statement from Swift Air read, in part:

The safety and well-being of our passengers and crew is always Swift Air's highest priority. The airline apologizes for any inconvenience as a result of this delay.
