LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — Officials at Baltimore-Washington International Airport say a Southwest Airlines jet slid on a taxiway while preparing for takeoff, but no injuries were reported.

The incident happened shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday and involved Southwest Flight 906, a Boeing 737 bound for Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Officials with the airport and the Federal Aviation Administration say the aircraft remained on the pavement.

Southwest officials say the 143 passengers and six crew members safely climbed down stairs and were bussed to the airport terminal.

The airline said passengers would be accommodated on a different aircraft and were scheduled to arrive in Montego Bay about three hours behind schedule.

The incident remains under investigation.
