An Air Canada regional jet bound for St. John’s, Newfoundland, from Toronto, made an emergency landing at Bangor International Airport on Monday afternoon after the crew reported an odor of smoke in the cabin.

Flight 692, an Embraer 190, landed safely at the airport at 2:18 p.m. Monday, said Jim Peters, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration. The airport fire company responded but found no smoke or fire, just an electrical odor.

The FAA will investigate the incident, he said.

Meanwhile, Air Canada is responsible for making arrangements to transport its passengers to their destination.

An Embraer 190 can carry 100 to 124 passengers.
