UPDATE: (From the Omaha airport website) Eppley Airfield is now OPEN to aircraft operations. There may still be some flight delays. Please check with your airline for flight status.
Flights at Omaha’s airport have been suspended after an airplane slid off an icy runway.
No one has been reported injured.
Officials with Eppley Airfield said on Twitter, “There are no injuries and airport fire crews are working with Southwest to deplane the passengers and take them to the terminal.”
Southwest Airlines tweeted that the plane landed safely and “slid onto a runway overrun area while taxiing.”
Southwest Flight 1643 from Las Vegas slid off the end of Runway 14R shortly after two o’clock this afternoon. It had 150 passengers and a six-member crew.
Eppley moved to suspend all flights afterward. Passengers are encouraged to check the status of their flights before going to the airport.
