COLORADO SPRINGS - An American Airlines flight #AA5919 has been diverted for an emergency landing at the Colorado Springs Airport.

The flight was from Sioux Falls to Phoenix. But, according to the Airport's Media Communications the landing is due to a maintenance issue involving a device that regulates cabin pressure.

An American Airlines spokesman says 76 people were on board, but the issue has been resolved.

The spokesman also says the flight will be taking off soon and is expected to land in Phoenix at 8:08 p.m.
