Southwest plane loses air pressure, makes emergency landing

Published on : Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Southwest AirlinesA flight of Southwest Airlines that was travelling from Belize based in Central America to Denver was compelled to be diverted after the cabin pressurization stopped functioning.

 

Pressurization is essential at altitudes above 10,000 feet as low air pressure might cause many psychological conditions including decompression and altitude sickness.

 

Southwest flight 289 had to be diverted to Houston when it became clear that the airplane would not be able to continue on its pre-scheduled path.

 

It is believed that no one on board was impacted by the drop in pressurization.

 

A spokesman of Southwest Airlines said that it appears that they had diverted exercising utmost caution due to a mechanical issue onboard the flight.

 

One of the regional news agencies had reported previously how a passenger jet was forced to go for an unscheduled landing after an altercation suddenly broke out over a man who had broken wind mid-flight.

 

The flight was then scheduled to arrive in Amsterdam after a long-haul trip from Dubai.

 

But it was compelled to ground in Vienna, Austria following the dispute.
