BURBANK (CBSLA) — A Southwest Airlines flight arriving at Burbank Airport from Oakland skidded off the runway after landing Thursday morning.

The jet was stopped by the airport’s Engineered Material Arresting System, which is designed to stop an aircraft that goes off the end of a runway.

The flight had 117 passengers on board.

Shortly after the incident, passengers were calmly seen disembarking the aircraft via an emergency slide.

There were no reported injuries.

The Federal Aviation Administration implemented a “groundstop” for Burbank for flights departing from airports within about a three-hour flying distance of Burbank.

The groundstop was lifted just before 11 a.m.

Flights were continuing to depart from Burbank.

Southwest Airlines says it is canceling all its flights at the airport until at least 1:55 p.m.

This is a breaking news report. More information will be added as it comes in.
