Plane Emergency Landing

A plane travelling from Rome to New York has declared a general emergency and has been diverted to Heathrow Airport to land.

Alitalia Airlines flight AZ698 has been diverted to the West London airport after declaring an emergency over France.

The flight, which left Rome at 10.37am on Sunday (February 16), was due to land in New York at 2.25pm.

But at around 11.30am the flight declared a general emergency and began a descent over the English Channel.

It was diverted to Heathrow Airport shortly afterwards and is now preparing to land.

It is not yet known why the flight has declared an emergency landing.
