All Flights Cancelled At JFK Airport After Jet Skids Off Runway

Wintery weather has been pounding the North-East over the past few days, as snow and extremely cold air make life more difficult. You may typically think of cars sliding into snowbanks on the side of the road, but you probably don’t think about a jet doing it at the airport. This morning Delta Connection Flight 4100 from Toronto (YYZ) landed safely on the runway at JFK Airport, but then skid off the taxiway and into a snowbank as it turned towards the gates.

Jet Skids Off Runway At JFKAuthorities closed the runways at the airport immediately after the incident, as freezing rain continued to fall in New York. Temperatures held out just below freezing this morning, causing many to think that perhaps the airport had plenty of ice on the surfaces. Crews from the airport began salting the taxiways and runways in an effort to dissolve whatever ice that may be present. Meanwhile emergency crews assisted with the evacuation of the 35 passengers on board Delta’s small commuter aircraft. No injuries have been reported at this time.

The small aircraft that caused the airport to shut down was just a small CRJ2, which is typically used by regional airlines and commuters. Had this been a larger aircraft, perhaps it would not have veered off of the taxiway so easily. The FAA is investigating the cause of the incident.

Luckily it appears that nobody was seriously injured in the accident, and the JFK Airport is expected to resume normal flight schedules soon, at approximately 11:30am local time. In the meantime this has caused many flight delays all over given the traffic volume that JFK would expect in the 3-hour shutdown that is taking place.
