An Avianca Airbus A320-200, registration N687TA performing flight AV-9 from Miami,FL (USA) to Bogota (Colombia) with 150 passengers and 6 crew, was climbing through FL300 out of Miami when the crew needed to shut one of the engines (V2527) down. The aircraft diverted to Havana (Cuba) for a safe landing.

A passenger reported there had been a huge bang, the aircraft jolted, the aircraft diverted to Havana, the crew indicated there had been a problem with one of the engines.

The airline reported the aircraft diverted to Cuba due to a technical malfunction. The passengers are going to travel to Bogota the following day.
