A passenger who was on an incoming flight to Bradley International Airport and had flu-like symptoms was taken to the hospital on Saturday.
Firefighters responded to a medical call onboard a Spirit Airlines flight around 11:45 a.m. after getting a report of a passenger with mild flu-like symptoms, Connecticut Airport Authority officials said.
The passenger, described by state police as a woman in her early 20's, was evaluated and was determined to not need further medical attention, authorities said.
Experts said the passenger was later transported to a nearby hospital at her request.
The flight was later cleared by officials to resume its regular response.
