An Air France flight from Los Angeles to Paris has been diverted to Salt Lake City following a phoned-in bomb threat, US authorities said.

The plane landed in Utah without incident and all the passengers got off safely.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said Air France Flight 65, an Airbus A-380, took off from Los Angeles International Airport last night for Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris.

Salt Lake City International Airport spokeswoman Bianca Shreeve said the empty plane was a safe distance from the terminal and the FBI was taking over the investigation with assistance from airport police and dog units.

She did not have any further details on the phone threat.
