BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — An official at a Montana airport says a Delta Air Lines flight heading from Seattle to Paris with more than 200 people aboard was diverted to Billings after an "electrical odor" was detected on board.

Billings Logan International Airport operations supervisor Shane Ketterling tells the Billings Gazette that the plane made a precautionary landing around 7 p.m. Monday. It landed safety in the Montana city after leaving Seattle on Monday afternoon. No injuries were reported.

Ketterling says the Boeing 767 carried 203 passengers and 10 crew members. He says an inspection of the plane didn't immediately find any problem.

Passengers were let off the plane and taken to the terminal.

A Delta representative didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press seeking additional details.
