A United Airlines flight made an emergency landing in Detroit on Tuesday morning, according to an official at Detroit metro airport.
The flight was coming from Chicago and headed to Greenville, S.C., before it diverted.
“There was a concern about possible smoke on the aircraft, and the aircraft landed without incident at approximately 9:37 this morning,” said Erica Donerson, Director of Government and External Affairs for Detroit metro airport.
Donerson said that the fire department responded and the smoke and odor had dissipated from the aircraft.
“The aircraft was turned over to United Airlines for inspection,” Donerson said.
According to the WDIV (Local 4), the passengers from the flight are expected to get on a different plane from Newark that’s headed to Detroit, which would deliver them to their final destination in South Carolina.
ExpressJet spokesman Jarek Beem says there were 50 passengers, two pilots and one flight attendant aboard ExpressJet flight 4007 on Tuesday morning.
Donerson described the landing as safe.
“Everyone is fine,” Donerson said. “There were no injuries or anything like that.”
Atlanta-based ExpressJet operates flights as American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express.
