A Delta plane has made an emergency landing at Rochester International Airport

ABC affiliate KAAL-TV reports the Delta aircraft was en route from St. Louis heading to Minneapolis. 

The airport said the plane safely landed around 7:20 a.m. with 39 passengers and four crew membes on board. No medical attention was needed.

A statement from SkyWest Airlines reported the plane, operating as a Delta Connection flight, diverted "due to a smoky odor in the cabin."
