A Delta jet skidded into the snow at John F. Kennedy International airport shortly after landing, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, but flights at the New York airport were halted for several hours due to icy conditions. They resumed late Sunday morning.

The Delta Connection 4100 flight originating from Toronto's Pearson International Airport landed safely at JFK shortly before 8 a.m. and was exiting the runway onto a taxiway when it slid into the snow, the FAA said. According to ABC News, there were 35 people on board.

The plane, a CRJ-200, is operated by Endeavor Air.

The incident comes a day after a single-engine plane made an emergency landing on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx. No one was seriously injured in that incident.
