The plane was capable of making a safe landing.
The spokeswoman of the airlines named Lauren Stewart said in a statement that the airlines company is aware of the fact that the very same aircraft is had experienced a similar incident on Thursday.
On Thursday, the same flight 737 that was on its route from Calgary to Phoenix was carrying 168 people on board the flight.

After landing without any further incident in Calgary, the plane had been removed from service for the purpose of overnight maintenance before it was cleared for Friday’s flight, according to Stewart.
Stewart added that the aircraft would be removed once more and the maintenance inspections would be conducted before it is returned to normal service. She said that the airlines would like to offer an apology to their guests for the inconvenience caused. But she mentioned that the travellers would be accommodated for Toronto immediately.
