JFK Airport Reopens After Icy Conditions

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The cold weather has slowed travel in the New York City area.

A ground stop was in effect Sunday morning at John F. Kennedy International Airport due to icy conditions.

Before the closure, a Delta plane had skidded off a JFK runway and into a snow bank. According to the Port Authority, the plane landed safely and no injuries were reported, but JFK temporarily closed so crews could salt and sand the runways.

The airport reopened around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
