Vancouver snow: EVA Air plane skids off taxiway at YVR
A plane went off a taxiway at Vancouver International Airport due to snowy and slippery conditions.
While exiting a taxiway to make its way to the gate, the plane got stuck in the grass adjacent to the north runway.
“Due to the incident, the north runway was unavailable for arrivals,” said YVR spokeswoman Megan Sutton in a statement. “However, the south runway remained open for both arrivals and departures and YVR continued to be fully operational.”
Passengers were stuck on the plane for three hours before they were able to disembark and taken to the terminal on buses.
There are no reports of injuries.
