A man is hospitalized after a flight to Tulsa, Oklahoma, was diverted to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for an odor.
A flight from San Diego-based Frontier Airlines had to land in Phoenix "The plane landed without incident and most of the passengers were able to get off the plane," said a Phoenix Fire spokesman.
Seventeen people were evaluated as a precaution after a "smell came through the plane and then it was gone," said a fire department spokesman. A 62-year-old man was taken to the hospital.
The cause of the odor is being investigated by Frontier Airlines. An airline spokesperson made the following statement:
Frontier Airlines Flight 238 from San Diego to Tulsa landed in Phoenix this morning after a member of our crew found a smell. Safety is Frontier's priority, and the decision to land in Phoenix was made with great caution. As usual, anyone who requests a medical review receives one. Arrangements will be made to allow passengers to continue their journey.
