A Latam plane traveling between the capitals of Chile and Paraguay had to make an emergency landing in Asuncion on Wednesday after going through “severe weather conditions during its flight path,” the airline told CNN in a statement on Thursday.

The procedure “went smoothly” and “both passengers and crew are in good condition,” the statement said. The airline also said it regretted “the inconvenience this weather situation may have caused its passengers.”
