SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A flight bound for San Diego was diverted late Sunday night after smoke was seen in the plane’s cabin.

10News learned Frontier Airlines Flight 1839 departed Tulsa, Oklahoma, at about 9:30 p.m. local time and was at least an hour into the flight when the smoke was reported.

Pilots made a flight plan change that led to an emergency landing in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Passenger Jessica Anzai told 10News’ Scripps affiliate KJRH that oxygen masks did not drop for passengers, but she heard pilots wearing them as they made a cabin announcement.

The cause of the smoke is under investigation and no injuries were immediate reported.

KJRH reported the airline gave passengers a flight voucher and booked them hotels overnight.

The flight arrived in San Diego just before 11 a.m.
