0

All flights were halted temporarily in and out of Newark Liberty Airport Saturday afternoon when a plane apparently skidded off a runway.

“Due to an airport emergency there are currently no arrivals nor departures from Newark Airport. Please check with your carrier before coming to the airport,” according to the airport’s Twitter feed.

United Airlines Flight 627, which was coming in from Denver, landed on a runway at the airport around 1 p.m., but “then skidded off the left side of the pavement,” a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson told the Post.

No injuries were immediately reported, authorities said. Service at the airport restarted shortly after 3 p.m.
