A plane landing from Toronto skidded off the runway, the FAA said.
The FAA said Delta Connection flight 4100 originated in Toronto and was being flown by Endeavor Air, according to NBC New York. No injuries were reported, and the FAA is investigating.
The plane was a Bombardier CRJ jet, officials said.
Ron Marisco, a spokesman with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, told NBC News that the plane had 35 people aboard and skidded into a snow bank while turning onto a taxiway after landing safely at runway 22L. Emergency crews were on the scene.
Delta Airlines said the plane was towed to a gate and passengers exited into the terminal.
To ensure safety, the Port Authority and FAA temporarily closed the airport so that crews can salt and sand the runways, Marisco said. Flight operations resumed at JFK at about 10:30 a.m., officials said.
