NEW YORK (AP) - Officials say a JetBlue Airways flight bound for Orlando has safely landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport after the crew reported smoke in the cockpit and declared an emergency.

The Federal Aviation Administration says JetBlue flight 227, an Airbus A320, had departed Newark Liberty International Airport en route to Orlando International Airport when it was diverted. It landed at JFK shortly after 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

A JetBlue spokesman says the crew had noticed an “electrical smell” in the cockpit. He said the passengers continued on to Orlando in a new aircraft.

The FAA said it will investigate.
