AMMAN — Royal Jordanian on Tuesday diverted an Amman-Madrid flight to Athens airport to save a passenger’s life.

The pilot requested permission to land at the nearest airport in order to provide treatment for a 52-year old Jordanian woman who suffered breathing difficulties, according to a statement sent to The Jordan Times.

After a 40-minute delay at Athens airport, the plane resumed its flight to Madrid. The airline said the Jordanian woman was in good condition, adding that her flight to Miami will be rescheduled soon.
