No injuries were reported of the 112 passengers and five crew members, airline spokeswoman Brandy King said in an email.
Flight 278 was arriving in Burbank from Oakland on Thursday morning, landing in a collapsible portion of runway that aims to stop planes from sliding farther and causing potential damage to other people and property. Passengers have deplaned, the airline said.
The airport said it remains open and that one of its runways is closed to the incident but another is open. Southwest said it suspended operations at the airport.
Hollywood Burbank Airport remains open. All Terminal B gates remain open and Terminal A Gates A1-A5 remain open. Runway 8/26 has been closed due to the incident. Runway 15/33 remains operational. Please check your flight status with your airline.
The plane rolled onto an airport safety feature, known as the Engineered Materials Arresting System, lightweight blocks that planes can slice through to stop their slide.
A Boeing 737 carrying then-vice presidential nominee Mike Pence overran the runway at New York's LaGuardia Airport and into the so-called EMAS in October 2016.
