Airport officials say a flight from New York City to Bangor slid off an icy taxiway in as it made its way to the terminal, but no passengers were injured.

Bangor International Airport says the nose wheel of the Delta flight from LaGuardia Airport went into the grass off the taxiway shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday.

The airport says the aircraft was returned to the taxiway and towed to the gate where passengers got off.

Airport Director Anthony Caruso says the plane skidded in the icy conditions experienced by much of the state through the day.
