HEBRON, Ky. — An aircraft arriving in Cincinnati from Las Vegas slid off pavement Sunday morning, according to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport’s Twitter page.

The plane was not in the process of landing, an airport spokesperson told WCPO. The plane was taxiing, or moving from one area of the airport to another.

No passengers or employees were injured, according to the tweet posted at about 6:15 a.m. The airport is open and operational at this time.

All passengers were off the plane and brought back to the terminal by about 7:15 a.m., the airport reported on Twitter.
