WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut officials say an engine problem aboard a Republic Airways flight from New Jersey to Vermont forced the plane to be diverted to Bradley International Airport north of Hartford.

The flight from Newark Liberty International Airport to Burlington International Airport landed without incident at Bradley Thursday evening. No injuries were reported among the 71 passengers and four crew members.

Republic Airways says maintenance crews are reviewing the issue.

Bradley officials say they shut down the airport for a short time as the plane landed and authorities investigated. The airport has reopened.

Passengers on the plane were brought to Bradley’s terminal and alternate transportation was arranged for them.
