OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Officials say a Southwest Airlines flight from Sacramento to Denver was diverted to Oakland after the aircraft ran into pressurization issues.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Sunday that flight 1655 landed at Oakland International Airport early Sunday evening as a result of the glitch.

Airport spokeswoman Keonnis Taylor says the plane landed safely.

No one was injured.

The plane was taken out of service for a maintenance check and the 133 passengers boarded another aircraft.

The incident comes just a few days after a Chicago-bound Southwest Airlines flight departing from Oakland airport circled for four hours in the sky before safely landing back at the airport after a possible landing gear problem.
