The runway at Prestwick Airport in the west of Scotland has been closed after a plane skidded on to the grass verge.

The Ryanair flight from Dublin had just touched down before 0900 GMT when it slid on ice while taxiing towards the terminal building.

Good to hear that nobody was seriously injured.

Jet Slides Off Runway At Prestwick Airport
Tom Bonnett and Emma Rowley, Sky News Online

A passenger jet slid off the runway at Prestwick airport in Ayrshire this morning as harsh weather conditions prompted widespread ice warnings.
The Ryanair plane hit a patch of ice and skidded on to the grass moments after landing just after 9am.

No one was hurt and all the passengers have been taken to the terminal, Strathclyde Police said.

Flight Global reports there appears to be no damage to the aircraft. Thankfully a very minor incident. But you can bet the pax got a hell of a scare though...

I'm gonna stick my neck out here and say this was the third similar incident - there was a coach came off the road in Cornwall last night, 2 fatalities, 47 injured. I'd say a coach and two planes has got to be the three.

Bravo to FR for their performance this week.

I've taken 4 FR flights in the past 10 days. The first 3 all departed on time and arrived early. The last, on Monday afternoon this week during the utter chaos affecting a great proportion of European travel, was less than 90 minutes late.

All but one of the flights cost significantly less than any other carrier could offer.

That money grabbing arse that is MOL, how dare he get me where I need to go for less than the others. What a cynical, customer loathing git he must be to expect me to get what I pay for.

Glad to hear this was a relaitvely minor incident and that noone was hurt.

The BBC article just says the plane slid off a taxiway, so pretty obvious what was happening (I expect) so no urgency/emergency to open slides..

Quoting Jamies80085 (Reply 20):

PIK ops are different from many airports. Because of the length of the runway (almost 10,000ft 13/31) it is not uncommon to see planes landing away from the wind on less breezy days and for there to be some very fast taxi's coming to / from the gates.

Albeit Ryanair said the incident happened on the taxiway, my impression was it happened on the runway?

Most commonly these type incidents happen when the aircraft turns off the runway onto a taxiway and rolls into the grass.

So saying it went off the runway or taxiway is really not important. It was a low speed incident.

I've just come back from having a look at the incident - I'm no expert but from the positioning, it looks very much as if the aircraft was turning off the runway on to the taxiway and part way through the turn, the aircraft hit the ice and carried on forward, missing the taxiway completely.

By way of an update, they're still working hard with excavators to dig round the forward undercarriage, presumably so as to be able to push the aircraft backwards. Other aircraft seem to be arriving and departing as normal, again thanks to the super long runway.

Was also there earlier, that's taxiway kilo, a high-speed turnoff, quite easy for the aircraft to slide off when it hit the ice.

From reports the mood was quite calm, it was barely noticable it had left the rwy and everyone was quite rational in their response, which is always great and stops the situation running away from itself.

Quoting Dangould2000 (Reply 27):

Absolutely agree. It is sensible for FR to say 'whilst taxiing' as any affiliation with it being on the runway might put the heebyjeebies up customers, and make the airline seem unsafe.

I hope this incident is a 'freak one' and certainly not a reflection of the cutting back of operations, and finances at PIK. If the passenger in the BBC news report who mentioned that he could hardly walk on the tarmac, let alone have a plane land on it, is to be believed then this is a significant worry. I would like to highlight two recent 'incidents' that may make me question some of PIK operations and cutbacks. I regularly use the airport, and as reported, and inline with economic and passenger recession, there has been a cutback in staff. Security has taken much longer on many peak occasions. Furthermore, my last flight, less than a week ago, the passengers disembarked. I saw only one PIK worker to oversee the passangers on a five minute walk to the terminal. He gingerly slid his foot across the tarmac when he saw a passenger skid a little on it. Then, whilst still walking on the tarmac, a young lady went flying on ice and really took a bash... no grit out, no personel to check on her... quite sub-standard. I dont want to ruffle any feathers for workers or fans of the aiport here ( I like it myself!)...
