A JetBlue flight from Savannah skidded off the taxiway after landing at Boston’s Logan International Airport late Monday.

JetBlue Flight 50, an Airbus A320, had just landed at 7:15 p.m. local time on an icy runway when it skidded, officials said. Airport firefighters helped passengers disembark and they were transported by bus to the terminal.

“We were straight and all of a sudden we started to spin, ending up in a snow bank,” a passenger told Frequent Business Traveler.

“No injuries have been reported at this time,” the airline said in a statement. “Buses transported customers from the aircraft to the terminal.”
