An American Eagle flight from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Montreal has made a safe emergency landing in Albany after smoke was reported in the cockpit and cabin.
Albany International Airport spokesman Doug Myers says Flight 3364 was 20 miles west of the field when the crew reported an odor and smoke. They were cleared for the emergency landing at about 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The 39 passengers and crew were evacuated from the plane. There were no injuries. Airport fire and safety crews are trying to determine the cause of the smoke.
Myers says it isn't initially clear how the travelers will resume their trip because American Eagle doesn't serve Albany.
