Two Delta Air Lines planes required emergency landings this past week, including one that was on its way to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

On Wednesday night, a plane flying from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale made a "rapid, controlled descent due to a possible aircraft depressurization issue."


The plane landed in Tampa and passengers were bussed to Fort Lauderdale.

A similar issue occurred Monday on a flight from Salt Lake City to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Delta confirmed this was due to a depressurization issue as well.

The crew diverted the flight to Rapid City, where passengers boarded another plane.
