LAS VEGAS (AP) - An airport official says an Allegiant Air flight bound for Knoxville, Tennessee, returned safely to Las Vegas after reporting an in-flight aircraft navigation problem.

McCarran International Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews said Monday that none of the 146 passengers and crew aboard Flight 434 was injured when the twin-engine MD-80 jet landed about 10:47 a.m.

Allegiant officials didn’t immediately respond to messages.

Crews says the pilot declared an in-air emergency a little before 10 a.m. and circled the area before returning to Las Vegas.

She says fire crews stood by as a precaution when the plane landed, but they weren’t needed.

Crews says she doesn’t have information about the aircraft’s equipment problem.
