Officials say a commuter jet made a safe emergency landing in Texas after a report of smoke in the cockpit.

ExpressJet Airlines spokeswoman Kristy Nicholas says the flight left Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport about 2 p.m. Monday for Omaha, Neb., but was diverted 30 minutes later to College Station's Easterwood Airport.

Nicholas says there were no injuries to the 38 passengers or three crew members on board. Another airplane was dispatched to take the passengers to Omaha.

The cause of the smoke has not been determined.

ExpressJet operated the flight that was marketed and booked by Continental Airlines.
