Jetblue A320 Nose Wheel Steering Fault

A Jetblue Airbus A320-200 was descending towards New York when the crew advised they had a minor situation on board, subsequently explaining they had no nose wheel steering. They would be able to vacate the runway but would then need to be towed to the apron, they did not declare an emergency and needed no assistance, ATC nonetheless had emergency services on standby. The aircraft landed safely on JFK’s runway 22L, vacated the runway and stopped, the crew again advising no assistance was needed. After landing the crew was asked to shut the engines down but advised them that they’d lose all electrical power with air conditioning out because APU was inoperative. The aircraft was towed to the apron.

The aircraft (N580JB) was performing flight B6-1274 from Charleston, SC to New York JFK, NY (USA) with 149 people onboard.
