British AirwaysA British Airways plane skidded off a runway in Denmark, on Tuesday due to technical issues after it landed in icy conditions at the airport.

 

According to the media reports British Airways Flight BA804 had just landed at Billund Airport in Denmark after a journey from London’s Heathrow Airport when the Airbus A319 began being taxied to the terminal.

 

The company has insisted the Airbus A319, which carries up to 160 travellers, landed “normally” and slid as it taxied slowly to the terminal.

 

As the plane was moving off the runway, it slumped to its left and became stuck in the snowy grass around the tarmac. The incident occurred at 9:06 a.m. local time, and officials from British Airways claim the technical issue was a “hydraulics and brakes failure.”

 

All of the passengers on the plane were safe following the incident and deplaned without incident. The captain reportedly kept calm throughout the ordeal, which helped the passengers onboard.
