CNN reported the couple had to secure a commercial flight to New York City. It’s unclear why Trump and Kushner were taking a helicopter and not a plane.

According to LiveATC.net, an aviation website, the helicopter was owned by the Trump Organization.

A spokesman for the couple had no comment to CNN on the incident.
