JetBlue flight slides off Logan Airport taxiway

JetBlue flight slides off Logan Airport taxiway”

"Once I realized we were going off the runway, I was like, 'uh-oh.' It was like you were going four-wheeling", passenger Terri Given told the outlet. Firefighters helped passengers off the plane, but no one was injured and the passengers were bused to the terminal.

Flight 50 from Savannah, Georgia, to Boston landed at 7:15 local time and then went into a skid.

The plane finally came to a stop between two taxiways. He says that forced it to touch down closer the end of the runway.

When told that emergency personnel would be responding, the pilot said, "We just need a tow". As much as three inches of snow had fallen previously in the day, and Logan International was temporarily closed that morning.

Earlier on Monday, Logan Airport shut down its runways and grounded its flights due to heavy snow, which brought about poor visibility. But the runways were later cleared for operations to continue as normal. Due to low visibility on the roads, the speed limit on the Massachusetts Turnpike was reduced to 40 miles per hour from the NY border to Boston.
