  • Officials with BWI airport confirm that a flight slid of the runway while it was attempting to take off Tuesday morning

BWI further stated that there are no reported injuries at this time.

The Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) on Twitter said: "BWI personnel have worked to move passengers from an outbound aircraft that stopped on taxiway pavement". "The pavement surface condition was tested immediately following the incident", Dean said in an email.

All 43 passengers and six crew members on the plane were bussed to the airport terminal to board another flight arriving into Montego Bay three hours later than originally planned as the cause was investigated, Southwest Airlines' representatives said in a statement to Travel + Leisure.


The plane stayed on the runway asphalt as all travelers were expelled from the flying machine and transported back to the airplane terminal. Officials with the airport and the Federal Aviation Administration said the aircraft remained on the pavement. "As always, the safety and support of our customers and employees remains our primary focus, and we are working to get them on their way as quickly as possible".

According to an airport spokesperson, 75 flights departed from Runway 15R-33L, where Flight 906 was headed for departure, before the incident took place. Temperatures have been drifting close - or on occasion beneath - solidifying a great part of the morning.

Southwest Airline flights to Hartford, Connecticut and Boston, Massachusetts as well as to Albany, New York later today have also been cancelled.
