Several ambulances were dispatched to the Calgary airport to respond to reports of a handful of sick passengers on the aircraft, EMS spokesman Stuart Brideaux said in a release.

In the end, paramedics assessed two people, opting to send one woman in her 30s to Peter Lougheed hospital with an unknown illness.

The woman is in non-life-threatening condition, Brideaux said.

The flight, originating from Munich, was expected to continue on to Los Angeles later on Friday afternoon.
