(AP)- A Delta Air Lines plane has slid off a taxiway amid icy conditions at an airport in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Airport officials say Flight 1770 was headed for Atlanta when it left the taxiway around 6:15 a.m. Saturday. No injuries or damage were reported. Conditions were icy, but Airport Director Marty Piette wasn’t sure if that’s what caused the incident.

The 107 passengers were bused back to the airport for rebooking on other flights. Passenger Kent Maxwell, told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that people on the plane were “calm and respectful” as the airline dealt with the issue.
