FORT-DE-FRANCE, Martinique

Officials say an Air Caraibes flight bound for Paris had to return to the French Caribbean island of Martinique minutes after takeoff Sunday.

Matthieu Garrigue-Guyonnaud is Cabinet director of the prefect of Martinique. He said that the plane's captain turned the Airbus around on Sunday evening after receiving information casting doubt on the flight's safety.

Airline officials did not disclose the specifics of why the craft with 344 passengers was turned around.

Several passengers were questioned by police after the plane touched down without incident. Authorities say an investigation of the plane and its baggage turned up nothing suspicious.

Air Caraibes says the plane has been cleared to resume its Paris trip on Monday.

The carrier is the regional airline of the French Caribbean.
