A spokesman for US Airways says a flight from New York to Louisville, Ky., has been diverted to Philadelphia International Airport because of security concerns.

Spokesman Jim Olson says US Airways Express Flight 3709 landed in Philadelphia around 9 a.m. Thursday morning after taking off from La Guardia airport. He would not elaborate on the security concern, referring questions to local authorities and the Transportation Security Administration.

Olson says the plane landed without incident and that the passengers have deplaned. He says they are being reaccommodated on other flights.

Airport spokesman Mark Pesce says the airport remains open and fully operational.

Calls to Philadelphia police and the FBI were not immediately returned.
