JFK AIRPORT TEMPORARILY CLOSED

News

JFK Airport was closed for a short time this morning following a Delta Connection flight, which skidded off the runway.

Airport officials have temporarily suspended flights from taking off and landing because of icy runways.

None of the 35 passengers were reported injured after Delta Connection 4100 landed this morning.

Federal Aviation Administration officials say the CRJ2 aircraft was turning off the runway onto a taxiway when it slid into the snow.
