The FAA said the plane, which was carrying 126 passengers, landed safely in Minot, N.D., after the pilot reported the odor and requested a diversion.

JetBlue said in a statement that Flight 597 was enroute to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport when the pilot chose to divert to Minot International Airport “as a precaution after noticing an electrical odor onboard.”

Maintenance technicians were assessing the aircraft, according to JetBlue.

The plane was back on its way to Seattle just before 3 p.m. Boston time.
