A Delta Air Lines flight carrying 60 passengers has slid off a taxiway in the snow after arriving in Wisconsin.

Dane County Regional Airport spokeswoman Kim Jones said no one was hurt when Delta Flight 385 from Minneapolis landed at the airport in Madison at 4pm local time yesterday.

It was taxiing when the Boeing 737-800 left the paved surface. Passengers were taken off the plane and brought to the terminal.

The airport was closed for about an hour while a second runway was cleared for use. It was then reopened.
