Enrique Iglesias emerged without a scratch after his flight over the Atlantic was forced to make an emergency landing Monday.

The Spanish pop star, 33 – on a promotional tour of Europe after the release of his greatest hits album – was aboard a plane from the U.S. that was forced to shut down one of its engines before being diverted to Luton Airport outside London, reports Britain’s Press Association.

The singer’s agent said, “The highly skilled pilots managed to make a safe landing and nobody was hurt.” A rep for Iglesias’s Polydor label confirmed no one was injured.

The air scare comes a month after Travis Barker and DJ AM miraculously survived a private-plane crash in South Carolina that claimed the lives of two crew members and two other passengers.
