An American Eagle plane has landed at a Louisiana airport after a note about a bomb threat was found.

FBI spokeswoman Mary Beth Romig said 15 passengers and three crew members were aboard a commuter aircraft that landed safely on Tuesday morning (local time). In a statement, American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said the Embraer 140 departed Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport at 9.18am and landed at Monroe Regional Airport at 10.29am.

Romig said no device was found aboard Flight 3648. She said agents were interviewing 15 passengers and three crew members but no suspects were immediately identified.

The airport was shut down.
