Salt Lake City International Airport, Salt Lake City, UT, US, The Salt Lake City International Airport was closed Thursday morning because of icy conditions after a Frontier airplane slid on the runway during landing.

The plane landed safely at about 10 a.m. and slid on a patch of ice while turning to the taxiway, Frontier Airlines spokeswoman Kate O’Malley said. None of the 139 passengers on the flight from Denver were injured and the airplane never left the pavement, she said.

It’s unknown how long the airport will be closed, airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann said. Five flights were cancelled this morning, and 15 other planes were forced to return to their gates when the runway was closed, she said.

It’s unknown how many airlines have been affected.

The airport is a hub for Delta Airlines, and seven other airlines run flights there too.

Freezing rain has also caused dozens of accidents on roadways around Salt Lake City this morning.
