SAN JOSE (KCBS) – An Alaska Airlines flight from Mineta San Jose International Airport Monday morning was forced to return for an emergency landing after a power problem, according to the airline.

Alaska flight 837 bound for Honolulu departed at 9:10 a.m. and promptly returned to Mineta San Jose after the problem temporarily affected a redundant navigation system, Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan said.

The captain decided to turn around out of an abundance of caution, said Egan.

The San Jose Fire Department said it was in standby mode in preparation for the landing. The plane landed safely used its own power to taxi to the gate, said airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes.

There were no injuries.
