A plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Prestwick due to fears of a fire on board.
The Air France Paris to Vancouver flight, carrying 294 passengers, declared the emergency on Saturday.
The AF374 service was forced to land early at Glasgow Prestwick Airport at 12.45pm after passengers raised concerns over a possible fire on board.
Air France sent a second plane to Prestwick to fly the passengers back to Charles de Gaulle Airport following the incident.
An Air France spokesman said: "Air France confirms that flight AF374 operating from Paris CDG to Vancouver was diverted to Glasgow Prestwick where it landed normally.
"Following the appearance of a slight smell of burning on board, the cabin crew, trained for this kind of situation, took the necessary precaution and diverted to the closest airport."
