southwest-airlinesAn aircraft of Southwest Airlines that was travelling to Orlando was forced to make an emergency landing on Monday evening in Jacksonville owing to a performance issue with the airplane, according to the officials.

 

The officials said that flight 3566 that was heading to Orlando from San Antonio was safely diverted to Jacksonville on account of a pressurization issue that had developed in mid-flight.

 

There were 133 passengers in the flight and none of them have suffered injuries.

 

One of the passengers provided the media with some photos from inside the cabin that showed the deployment of oxygen masks.

 

In a statement, the plane landed and taxied to a gate under its own power.

 

The customers waited inside the airport and the employees of the airlines company tried to assist them with their affected travel plans. Another aircraft had been brought in to minimize their delay and transport them all to Orlando.

 

Thereafter, the aircraft was pulled out of service for the purpose of inspection, as declared by the airline.

 

Finally, the passengers who had successfully departed from San Antonio about 90 minutes late were able to arrive in Orlando about four hours behind schedule.

 

Southwest Airlines then apologized for the delay.

 

The airline also said that the passengers would be offered flight vouchers to apply for their next trip.
