DEER LAKE, N.L. — An Air Canada flight had to make an emergency landing Monday night at the Deer Lake regional airport in Newfoundland.

The RCMP says the flight was headed to Goose Bay, Labrador from St. John’s when a problem developed with one of the engines just before 8 p.m.

The crew smelled smoke in the cockpit about 130 kilometres from Goose Bay and the crew landed safely with the second engine.

There were no injuries among the 14 passengers and two crew members.

The aircraft remains at the Deer Lake regional airport and passengers from flight 7633 were to be transported on another flight.

The RCMP says the matter has been reported to Transport Canada.
