Phoenix-to-Dallas Southwest Airlines flight diverted to Albuquerque after smoke fills cabin

A Dallas-bound flight was diverted to the Albuquerque International Sunport Sunday night after smoke filled the aircraft's cabin. "Initial reports indicate five customers requested assessment by medical personnel". "The diverted aircraft will remain in Albuquerque until our Mechanics inspect and clear its return to service".

The captain of flight 3562 noticed smoke in the cabin and announced that the aircraft would be landing as the closest possible airport.

Fire officials in Albuquerque tweeted that two people were injured and taken to a hospital. The exact nature or extent of their injuries are not yet known.

After waiting for a while on the tarmac, passengers were eventually put on another plane and made it to Love Field around 3 a.m. The airport officials, however, praised the flight's crew for their smooth and professional handling of the situation.

Passengers later boarded another plane and continued to Dallas.
