— -- Khloe Kardashian was aboard an American Airlines flight that made an emergency landing in Las Vegas, the reality star tweeted.

American Airlines flight 256, which was bound for New York City, landed safely in Las Vegas at 3:27 p.m. local time after reports of smoke in the cockpit, officials at McCarran Airport said.

There were 81 passengers and eight crew members aboard the Airbus A321, which suffered a mechanical issue, American Airlines said. There were no injuries.

"Our maintenance team is currently evaluating the aircraft," the airline said in a statement. "We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience, and are working to get them to New York as soon as possible."

Kardashian was scheduled to appear on "Good Morning America" Wednesday morning.

"NYC I'm trying to get there," she tweeted about 20 minutes after the flight landed in Las Vegas.
