Emergency crews were forced to respond to an emergency landing at the Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport on Saturday.
Julie Pondant, a spokesperson for the airport, told Global News that the flight was originally destined for the Magdalen Islands.
But Flight 8724, operated by Jazz, was forced to divert to Moncton when the crew noticed a problem with a hydraulic system.
Teri Udle, a spokeswoman for Jazz, says as a precautionary measure, the flight was diverted to Moncton, N.B., and landed safely without incident.
Udle says the Dash 8 aircraft is equipped with multiple hydraulic systems and passengers were not at risk.
Julie Pondant, says emergency response crews were on scene when the plane landed around 3 a.m.
Another flight was arranged to take the passengers to their destination later in the day.
