A flight bound for Houston had to make an unscheduled stop at the Corpus Christi International Airport today.

An air conditioning problem and low fuel caused American Airlines flight 2077 headed to Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport form Charlotte, North Carolina to divert to CCIA.

Airport officials say the plane, an Airbus A320 carrying 130 people, landed safely at the airport at 2:26 p.m.

The aircraft was refueled and departed for Houston just before 4 p.m.
