A Skywest-Delta commuter jet made an emergency landing Thursday morning at Salt Lake International Airport in response to a bomb threat.

Airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann said that Flight 4654, a Helena, Mont. to Salt Lake City Delta connection flight, was immediately cleared of its 46 passengers and three-member crew upon landing about 7:55 a.m.

“Airport police, fire and FBI personnel moved in to sweep the aircraft, which was parked and secured on the north end of the airfield,” Gann said.

No injuries were reported, and authorities did not immediately report finding any suspicious packages aboard the twin-engine CRJ-200 aircraft.
