HANOVER TWP., Pa. - A United Airlines flight had to make an emergency landing at Lehigh Valley International Airport Tuesday night.
According to Colin Riccobon, the spokesperson for the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority, the Boeing 757 was headed to Los Angeles from Newark when the smell of smoke was detected.
Initial reports indicated the smoke smell was coming from the bathroom of the plane.
A Newark Liberty International Airport flight tracker shows flight UA1165 took off around 8:30 p.m. and was diverted shortly thereafter.
Riccobon says the plane landed without incident and no one was injured.
Passengers were bused back to Newark through United Airlines.
There’s no word what led to the smell of smoke.
