The plane managed to land successfully with the airline saying staff had responded "perfectly".

Daniel McNeely, a passenger on Air France flight AF66, described the incident to the Daily News.

The aircraft landed safely at 8:42 a.m.

"Technical issue identified, AF66 diverting per precaution to Goose Bay YYR for technical checks".

The re-routing has taken place so that the flight passed over Greenland, the aircraft landed at Goose Bay at 17h42 gmt, said the spokesman.

Canada following a "serious injury" on one of its four reactors, announced the company on Saturday in Paris.

"The Engine Alliance GP7000 is a turbofan jet engine manufactured by Engine Alliance".

The debris had to be cleaned up before Runway 26 could be reopened.
