A Delta Air Lines jetliner with 127 passengers and five crew members aboard slid off the runway at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Thursday during a snowstorm, according to officials.
Delta Flight 1086 was landing at LaGuardia after flying from Atlanta when it skidded, officials said. Passengers were evacuated from the McDonnell Douglas MD-88 aircraft and moved to the terminal on buses. A Port Authority statement said there did not appear to be any major injuries, and all aboard were safely removed from the plane.
New York's LaGuardia Airport was closed immediately after the incident occurred, with the Federal Aviation Administration originally announced that the airport was expected to fully reopen at 6:59 p.m. EST. This was soon rolled back, as the airport's other runway reopened around 2 p.m.
The Port Authority recommended that travelers with flights scheduled to arrive and depart from the airport still check with their carrier about their status.
Snow has been falling on New York and surrounding areas through most of Thursday.
Retired airplane pilot Robert Mark told CNBC's "Power Lunch" that "one thing that does seem a bit problematic" is the runway the flight used for a landing. Because the wind was apparently coming off of the plane's tail, he said that this could have posed a problem.
"[Planes] certainly want to be landing into the wind when the runway has something on it like snow, or ice, or water," he said. "And we may find that that becomes a contributing cause to this accident."
