CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A Delta Air Lines flight bound for Atlanta from Mexico made an emergency landing at Corpus Christi International Airport in Texas after experiencing problems with its air conditioning.

Airport spokeswoman Kim Bridger tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times ( ) that the problem Wednesday caused about six people to fall ill. The newspaper reports no passengers required medical attention.

Bridger says the airport's public safety division, including peace officers, firefighters and emergency medical services, met the plane on the runway when it landed and helped bring affected passengers into air-conditioned spaces.

She said the plane contained 71 passengers and four crew members, including a pilot. She says the crew was able to remedy the air conditioning problem and left the airport about two hours later.

The flight had departed from Monterrey.
