Southwest Airplane Forced to Make Emergency Landing

The plane was flying to Houston when it began experiencing issues, an airline spokesperson said.

A Southwest Airlines flight traveling from Dallas Love Field to Houston Hobby Airport was forced to make an emergency landing due to a "pressurization issue," an airline spokesperson says.

Southwest flight #43 returned to Love Field after the captain received a "cockpit indication that there was a pressurization issue."

Oxygen masks were deployed on board as a precaution, and the plane landed safely in Dallas.

The aircraft has been taken out of service for inspection, the airline spokesperson said.

The airline also said they are working to accommodate their customers another flight to Houston.

On Tuesday, another Southwest flight was diverted to Jackson, Mississippi, after a loss of cabin pressure prompted the aircraft's oxygen masks to lower.
