WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Officials say an Allegiant Air flight traveling from Orlando, Florida, to Bangor, Maine, was forced to make an emergency landing at a Rhode Island airport after passengers reported an abnormal smell.
Allegiant spokeswoman Kim Schaefer says Flight 736 landed safely at T.F. Green Airport in Warwick at 4:28 p.m. Wednesday with 151 passengers and six crew members.
No injuries were reported, and officials say there was no indication of fire or smoke.
Passengers were booked into hotels for the night, and a replacement plane was scheduled to leave Warwick for Bangor on Thursday morning.
