Authorities are investigating after a security issue arose on a JetBlue flight from Providence to Orlando on Saturday evening.

JetBlue officials originally said the flight originated in Hartford but later said it departed from Providence.

According to a JetBlue spokesperson, a flight crew found a note containing a bomb threat while cleaning the plane at the gate in Orlando. All passengers had left the plane when the note was discovered.

Orlando police responded to a bomb threat at the airport shortly after 8 p.m., according to NBC station WESH in Orlando.

JetBlue said there are currently no security-related issues with the plane and that the incident did not affect other flights at the airport.

The airline said it notified authorities.

Officials at Bradley Airport said they were not aware of any problems, and Orlando Airport personnel have not returned a request for comment.
