GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Airport officials said a Delta flight headed to New York had to land right after taking off after someone reported smelling smoke.

Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport's Vice President of Communications Rosylin Weston said Delta flight number 6102 took off at 7:30 a.m. headed for New York's LaGuardia Airport when someone reported the smell of smoke coming from the plane's lavatory.

Pilots reported the smell and were told to land again at GSP, Weston said. The plane was back on ground by 8 a.m.

Weston said there were 47 passengers on board and there was no report of any injuries.

It is not clear when passengers will depart again for LaGuardia.
