southwest-airlinesSouthwest Airlines has confirmed that a certain flight that was travelling from Phoenix to Atlanta on Saturday morning was compelled to go for an emergency landing.

 

Flight 118 started suffering from a pressurization fault.

 

This prompted the pilots to initiate a controlled descent and divert the aircraft to Amarillo that is based in Texas. The airline late declared that the pilots had followed the emergency procedure in order to reach a safe altitude.

 

Thereafter, it landed at the nearest airport. Emergency masks were deployed on board.

 

The plane then departed from Phoenix around 6.05 a.m. Southwest Airlines said that nobody on board the flight was injured as a result of the emergency landing. The aircraft was out of service while the mechanics had been checking it out.

 

All the passengers eventually were capable of making it to Atlanta around 5 p.m., seven hours later than it was planned.
