The aircraft turned around and descended towards Atlantic City, the crew advised the odour was still present, however, no evacuation was to be expected. The aircraft landed safely on Atlantic City's runway 31. The aircraft stopped briefly on the runway, then taxied to the apron with the emergency services in trail.

The aircraft remained on the ground in Atlantic City for about 4 hours, then continued the journey and reached Santo Domingo with a delay of 4.5 hours.
