One person was reportedly injured at Charlotte Douglas International Airport after a Frontier Airlines plane was evacuated due to a “strong odor.”

The accident occurred when Flight 1759 was scheduled to depart Wednesday evening for Orlando, Florida.

“Yesterday evening, while Flight 1759 was boarding at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, a strong odor was detected throughout the aircraft. As a precaution, the captain issued an evacuation notice,” Frontier Airlines told FOX Business in a statement.

“Passengers exited the aircraft via the jet bridge and evacuation slides. The company added that initial reports indicate there was no visible smoke or fire. “All passengers will be re-accommodated on alternate flights.”

The person who evacuated the flight was taken to a local medical facility with minor injuries after suffering a fall, the Queen City News reported.

One passenger told the Queen City News they first smelled something on the plane — an Airbus A321neo — before the lights went out.
