RENO, Nev. (AP) — Officials at Reno-Tahoe International Airport say a plane was diverted there twice in less than 24 hours for mechanical problems.

Airport spokeswoman Heidi Jared said a JetBlue flight from Boston to San Francisco landed in Reno on Tuesday night after experiencing mechanical issues.

Jared said another plane was brought in, and passengers were flown to San Francisco early Wednesday.

She said pilots were trying to fly the original Airbus A320 out of the airport on Wednesday when mechanical problems again forced the plane to land in Reno.

It wasn't immediately known how many passengers were affected or whether the plane had repairs between Tuesday and Wednesday.

JetBlue officials didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
