Salt Lake Airport Suspends Flights Due to Plane Slide-Off

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Flights were suspended at the Salt Lake City International Airport after a cargo plane slid on a taxiway.

Typically when Salt Lake Airport diverts planes some are sent to Twin Falls at Joslin Field.

Airport spokesman Barbara Gann says flights were canceled or diverted around 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

Crews are working to de-ice and sand the runways.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the Boeing 757 cargo plane landed safely but slid on the ground.

FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer says nobody was injured and the cargo plane was not damaged.

Gann called it a minor incident. But she says the airport was forced to halt operations for all flights because of slippery conditions.

The National Weather Service says Utah’s Wasatch Front can expect several inches of snow Thursday.
