JetBlue said one of its flights returned to John F. Kennedy International Airport on Tuesday because of an unusual odor in the cabin — the second such incident in a week.

JetBlue Airways Corp. spokeswoman Alison Eshelman said Flight 68 bound for Syracuse, N.Y., left the airport at 9:50 a.m. and returned to the airport about 20 minutes later. The Embraer 190 was carrying about 59 passengers. There were no injuries and passengers were put on other flights, Eshelman said.

JetBlue said its maintenance crew is currently examining the plane.

Another JetBlue flight, also an Embraer 190, returned to JFK last Tuesday after the pilot reported smelling smoke in the cockpit.
