NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A JetBlue flight from Orlando landed at Newark Airport on Wednesday and was met by law enforcement after a "possible security threat," a company spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said JetBlue flight 2028 was taxied to a remote area after landing in Newark.

Port Authority told PIX 11 a bomb squad met the plane as it landed and a person was taken into custody. It wasn't immediately clear who the individual was or what charges they faced.

The FBI was notified of a possible bomb threat at 10:25 a.m., Port Authority added. The plane was cleared just before 1 p.m.

"The safety of our customers and crewmembers is JetBlue's first priority, and we will work to support law enforcement with their investigation," the JetBlue spokesperson said in a statement.

No injuries were reported.

1010 WINS has reached out to Port Authority for comment.
