A flight heading from Edmonton to Mexico made an emergency medical landing Sunday morning in western Montana after encountering extreme turbulence that slightly injured two flight attendants.
A Sunwing Airlines spokeswoman said the Boeing 737 landed at Helena Regional Airport, a small hub unaccustomed to dealing with international travellers. The passengers got on a second plane and took off for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, about 11 hours after the first plane landed, airport officials said.
The captain had the seatbelt sign on during the turbulence, and no passengers were injured, the spokeswoman said.
