JUNEAU, Alaska (AP)– An Alaska Airlines plane that was flying from Seattle to Anchorage was diverted to Juneau because of engine failure.

KTOO-FM (http://is.gd/YynnAt) reports that Flight 731 was diverted to Juneau International Airport late Sunday night. Alaska Airlines says the plane landed without incident after the crew declared an emergency for priority handling by air traffic controllers.

Airline spokeswoman Marianne Lindsey says 160 passengers and six crew members were on board the plane when one of the aircraft’s two engines shut down as it flew at cruise altitude over the Ketchikan area. Lindsey says the plane is designed to fly on one engine.

No one was injured.

Passengers were re-booked on Monday morning and afternoon flights to Anchorage.

Lindsey says aircraft technicians are investigating the cause of the engine shutdown.
