Delta airliner makes emergency landing in Minnesota

The aircraft landed safely at approximately 7:20 a.m. Thursday.

A Delta aircraft that was en route to Minneapolis-St. Paul International from St. Louis made an emergency landing in Rochester, Minnesota, on Thursday morning. 

Rochester Airport tweeted that the SkyWest CRJ900 aircraft was carrying 39 passengers and four crew members when it made the emergency landing. 

The decision to land in Rochester was made due to a "smoky odor in the cabin," according to a statement from Delta: 

"SkyWest Flight 3757, operating as Delta Connection, from St. Louis, Missouri, to Minneapolis, diverted to Rochester, Minnesota due to a smoky odor in the cabin. The flight landed in Rochester without incident and passengers are en route to Minneapolis via bus."

None of the passengers or crew were injured. 

"At approx. 7:20 a.m. the aircraft landed safely and emergency personnel responded," Rochester Airport tweeted.
