JFK Airport is closed on Sunday morning after a Delta plane slid off the icy runway after landing. The airport is closed due to the weather, as much of the Tri-State area is under a freezing-rain advisory, according to NBC News on Jan. 5.

About 8 a.m. this morning, a Delta jet landed on runway 22 at JFK and slid into the snow. It was moving toward a taxiway at the time it slid. The plane was carrying 35 passengers and no injuries were reported.

JFK airport is expected to reopen this morning around 11:30 a.m., according to the operators of the airport, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The Port authority suggests call ahead to your carriers if you have travel planes out of JFK on Sunday morning. It was Delta Connection 4100 that slid off the runway this morning. The Delta flight was coming from Toronto, according to "Fox and Friends Weekend" live on Sunday morning.

Fox News live is reporting the freezing rain advisories will most likely cause other airports in the area close today, or continue causing long delays. Delays are reported at other airports in the area, so it is best to call ahead if you plan on flying out of the area today.

The snow storm, followed by the cold spell that has blanketed the Northeast in the last few days has caused numerous delays and cancellations in flights.
