SAO PAULO – A TAM Airlines jet was forced to return to Paris about 90 minutes after taking off Tuesday because of an unknown technical problem, the company said.
The A330 Airbus jet was en route from Charles de Gaulle airport to Rio de Janeiro when the problem occurred.
It safely landed and nobody was injured in the incident, said TAM spokeswoman Antoniela Silva.
“It was a technical problem, and as a safety measure TAM turned the flight around to Paris,” she said. “The problem is being investigated.”
Silva gave no more details about the nature of the technical problem. She said the plane is undergoing maintenance.
