LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A flight from Atlanta to Indianapolis has been diverted to Louisville, Ky., where it landed safely.

Louisville Regional Airport Authority spokeswoman Trish Burke told WAVE-TV that Air Tran Flight 186 landed without any problems Saturday morning at the Louisville International Airport.

Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Olga Romero said the crew decided to divert the flight for precautionary reasons after smelling smoke. She said the flight had 109 passengers and five crew members.

The airline said another plane would take passengers to Indianapolis.
