IQALUIT, Nunavut - A British Airways flight to Calgary from London was rerouted to Iqaluit late Wednesday.
FlightAware, an online flight tracking tool, shows the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner landed at 7:20 p.m. local time in Nunavut.
British Airways says in a statement Thursday that the flight was diverted as a precaution after a "technical issue."
They apologized to their customers who have been inconvenienced and delayed.
The statement around noon MDT says a replacement aircraft has landed and will depart for Calgary as quickly as possible.
They say the passengers are safe and being looked after in Iqaluit.
