The easyJet Airbus A319 carrying 145 passengers and six crew landed at Luton airport near the British capital as a precaution at around 2pm (1400 GMT) on Monday, a spokeswoman said.
She said: "easyJet can confirm that flight EZY6908 flying from Geneva to Edinburgh diverted to London Luton Airport due to a technical issue.
"The captain took the decision to divert as a precaution only. The safety of its passengers and crew is easyJet's highest priority."
The passengers were transferred onto a different plane to fly to Edinburgh.
