SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Airport officials say a Southwest Airlines flight from Denver has landed safely in Salt Lake City after a pilot reported the smell of smoke in the cockpit 20 minutes before landing.

Salt Lake City International Airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann says there are no indications of any fire on Southwest Flight 1291 on Tuesday morning and the smell of smoke dissipated by the time the plane landed.

Gann says the plane taxied to the gate and passengers disembarked from the plane as normal.

She says crews are checking the aircraft as a precaution.

No delays have been reported at the airport.

Flight records show the plane flew from Kansas City, Missouri around 7 a.m. and made in stop in Denver an hour later before flying to and landing in Salt Lake City around 10 a.m.
