BOSTON — A spokeswoman for Boston’s Logan International Airport said Friday night that two planes have landed safely after being struck by lightning.

Massachusetts Port Authority spokeswoman Lisa Langone said a JetBlue flight from Tampa, Fla., landed just after 9:20 p.m. Friday. She said the pilots reported smelling smoke in the cockpit.

About a half-hour later, a JetBlue flight from Baltimore landed in Boston after being struck by lightning.

No one was injured on either flight.

JetBlue Airways Corp. is based in Forest Hills, N.Y.
