LONDON – In the last hour, a SWISS Airbus A330 has turned back from the Atlantic Ocean and has diverted to Manchester Airport.

The flight in question was LX14, bound for New York’s JFK Airport from Zurich. The A330 in question was HB-JHF, one of the -300 variants.

Data from RadarBox.com shows that the aircraft got through a small chunk of the Atlantic before it took the decision to turn back and divert to Manchester.

The aircraft didn’t squawk any of the three emergency codes (7700, 7500, 7600) at any point.

Upon entering Shannon’s airspace, it was assigned the squawk code 7643, according to RadarBox.

AviationSource has approached SWISS to comment on the reason for this divert.

@SPD_Travels on Twitter has mentioned that the aircraft has diverted on medical grounds, but obviously not that urgent without the emergency squawk code.

This is a developing story.
