NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An international flight from Mexico to Chicago was diverted to Nashville early this morning.

The Aero Mexico flight, which took off in Guadalajara, Mexico, was scheduled to land at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, but was rerouted to Nashville because of low visibility at O’Hare.

The pilot only requested gas once they landed at Nashville International Airport. Passengers were not let off the plane because they would have needed to go through customs before taking off again.

The plane went back to Mexico after a short stay in Nashville.
