A BRITISH AIRWAYS flight had to make an emergency landing at Dublin Airport this morning due to a medical emergency onboard.

BA flight 2166 was travelling from Tampa International Airport in Florida to London Gatwick before it was forced to divert to Dublin.

A spokesperson for Dublin Airport confirmed that the flight had had to divert due to a medical emergency onboard.

The flight left Tampa yesterday evening at 6.21pm local time and was due to arrive in London at 7.55am. But it has been delayed until 9,56am.

The Dublin Airport spokesperson confirmed that the flight had landed safely.

The nature of the medical emergency is unknown.

It comes after a flight diverted to Shannon Airport last week due to a passenger dying onboard.
