A hijacked aircraft has landed at Geneva Airport in Switzerland, an airport spokesman told Reuters, but he did not give details on the flight.

Ethiopian Airlines released a statement saying its flight number ET-702 departing from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at 12:30 a.m. local time was scheduled to land in Rome, Italy at 4:40 a.m. local time. However, it "was forced to proceed to Geneva Airport" where it landed safely.

The flight is listed as having arrived at 6:10 a.m. local time in Geneva on the airport's website. The airport lists the plane as a Boeing 767-300.

All passengers and crew are safe, according to Ethiopian Airline's statement.

Many flights scheduled to arrive at Geneva airport Monday are now showing as either cancelled or diverted on the airport's arrival tracker online.
