Plane headed for Seattle makes emergency landing in Pasco

BOISE — Officials say an airplane bound for Seattle made an emergency landing in Pasco, Washington, on Thursday. No one was hurt.

The plane operated by Horizon Air left Boise with 76 passengers and four crew members. It landed at Tri-Cities Airport just after 4 p.m.

Cole Cosgrove, a spokesman for Alaska Airlines, a sister company to Horizon, says that the plane landed after having a pressurization problem in the cabin.

The pilots decided to land in Pasco as a precautionary measure.

Cosgrove says passengers on flight 2133 were at the Pasco airport until a second plane was sent from Seattle to pick them up and complete the journey.
