A female passenger about 30 years old who was on a Boston-bound British Airways flight has been taken into custody by Massachusetts State Police troopers after the aircraft landed on Tuesday, police said.

Police identified the flight number as 213, which left London's Heathrow airport at 6:57 a.m. ET (1157 GMT).

Massachusetts police had initially said on Twitter that the passenger had attempted to enter the aircraft's cockpit but spokesman David Procopio later said in an e-mail that they have not confirmed whether that was true or what her motivation may have been. An airline spokesman told New York's ABC television affiliate that the passenger had tried to open an exit door.

British Airways, which is part of International Consolidated Airlines Group SA, said the crew had asked police to meet the flight due to an unruly passenger.

Live television images showed the aircraft parked at a jetway at Boston Logan International Airport.

The FBI said it was responding to the incident.
