Plane slides off JFK Airport runway

NEW YORK — A plane from Toronto slid into snow as it turned onto a taxiway after landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday, halting flights at the airport for two hours and causing residual delays.

The Delta Connection 4100 was carrying 35 passengers and crew members. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said there were no reports of injuries.

The CRJ2 aircraft landed safely at 8 a.m., only to lose its footing and slide into snow as it turned from the runway onto a taxiway. The plane was then towed to a gate with passengers on board, Bergen said.

Flights resumed after 10 a.m. on two of the airport’s four runways, but residual delays for passengers were expected to linger.

The landing came two days after a major snowstorm dumped a half foot of snow in New York City, forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights and stranding passengers both in the city and throughout the world who were heading to New York.

The Delta Connection flight by Endeavor Air originated in Toronto. Endeavor Air was formerly Pinnacle Airlines.

On Saturday, a small plane traveling to Connecticut after a tour of the Statue of Liberty made an emergency landing on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx. Neither the pilot nor his two passengers were seriously injured.
