Four flight attendants were transported to a local hospital after a medical emergency was reported aboard a Spirit Airlines flight that landed at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport on Friday morning.
The BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport Fire and Rescue Department responded to the report of possible sick individuals on board the aircraft shortly after it landed around 9 a.m., BWI spokesperson Jonathan Dean said in an email.
“It’s important to note there is no evidence this incident has any connection to COVID-19,” wrote Spirit spokesperson Field Sutton in an email. “None of the Guests and Spirit Team Members showed any symptoms of COVID-19.”
The flight attendants were transported to the hospital “out of an abundance of caution,” Sutton wrote. No other passengers required medical attention.
The plane, which flew out of Minneapolis, will undergo maintenance checks and a deep cleaning, Sutton wrote. In addition, the customers aboard will be issued future travel credits, Sutton said.
