CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – A maintenance issue caused a plane carrying 98 passengers and five crew members to make an emergency landing at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport Tuesday morning, a spokesperson for American Airlines says.
No injuries were reported and the plane made a safe landing.
According to American Airlines, the arrival city was changed to Charlotte for flight 2428, or the “Super 80,” from Raleigh/Durham to Dallas/Fort Worth.
Officials say they plan to asses the situation to decide if passengers will go back on the same plane or if a new aircraft will be used.
Fire officials say they were called out for the report, but as of 6:45 a.m., they were not on scene.
The airport is located on Josh Birmingham Parkway in southwest Charlotte.
