Détails:
Displaying pistols and explosives four hijackers demanded the aircraft be diverted to Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
After landing 13 women and 1 child were released. The hijackers, who claimed to be members of a group opposed to the present Honduran government, demanded release of 86 prisoners, 1 million lempiras ($500,000), publication of a political statement, and fuel for the aircraft. During negotiations several other passengers were released and Honduras officials agreed to refuel the aircraft and allow it to depart when all hostages were released. Early on May 1, ten hostages escaped. Two were injured in the escape.
Later on May 1, all remaining hostages were released, the hijackers then transferred to a Lockheed L-188 Electra aircraft and were flown to Havana, Cuba where they surrendered to Cuban authorities.
