Teri Udle, a spokeswoman for Jazz, says as a precautionary measure, the flight was diverted to Moncton, N.B., and landed safely without incident.

Udle says the Dash 8 aircraft is equipped with multiple hydraulic systems and passengers were not at risk.

An airport spokeswoman, Julie Pondant, says emergency response crews were on scene when the plane landed around 3 a.m.

Another flight was arranged to take the passengers to their destination later in the day.
