Frontier diverts flight to McCarran over engine trouble

A Frontier Airlines flight en route to San Diego was diverted to McCarran International Airport this morning due to a reported engine problem, according to an airport spokesman.

Frontier Flight 555 from Denver reported low-oil pressure in one of its engines and made a detour to Las Vegas as a precaution, according to Frontier and McCarran representatives.

The Airbus A319 landed safely about 7:30 a.m. at McCarran with no reported injuries to the 133 passengers or five crew members aboard.

Another plane was sent from Denver to Las Vegas, and customers boarded that flight, airline spokesman Jim Faulkner said.
