A Delta Air Lines plane skidded off an icy runway at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Sunday morning at 6:10, and the airport closed shortly thereafter.

Delta Flight 4100, which departured Toronto, Canada Sunday morning, touched down on runway 22L shortly before 8 a.m.  “As the aircraft was exiting the runway onto a taxiway, it slid into the snow,” the FAA said. “No injuries were reported to the FAA. The FAA is investigating.”

JFK, which closed due to icy conditions shortly after the accident, will remain closed until at least 11:30 a.m.
