PHOENIX (AP) — A United Express flight from San Francisco to San Antonio has been diverted to Phoenix because of a reported threat.
Officials at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport say Flight 5573 landed late Thursday afternoon and the 25 to 30 passengers on board the regional jet evacuated.
The nature of the threat wasn't immediately clear, but airport officials say a bomb squad has been called out to search the plane.
Sky Harbor officials say the plane has been isolated on the north side of airport and the incident isn't impacting any other flights.
United Express is the brand name for several regional airlines that operate shorter flights for United Airlines.
