DALLAS -- A Southwest Airlines jet from Austin, Texas, to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has made an emergency landing in Houston due to cabin pressure issues.

Southwest spokeswoman Whitney Eichinger says Flight 2896 landed safely at William P. Hobby Airport on Wednesday night.

Eichinger said Thursday that a pressurization issue was detected as the Boeing 737-700 departed from Austin.

She says nobody was hurt and that the 140 passengers continued on to Fort Lauderdale on another plane.

The jet has been taken out of service for inspection.

Southwest is based in Dallas.
