(DETROIT) — An airplane slid off of a taxiway at Detroit Metropolitan Airport just before 7 a.m. on Monday.

Delta flight 2283 was taxiing to the runway when icy conditions likely caused it to slip off the taxiway. The flight was heading to Atlanta. ABC News affiliate WXYZ reports there were no injuries.

According to a statement from Delta, all 180 customers were taken by bus to the terminal. They were expected to depart on another plane later in the morning.

Delta technicians spent Monday morning moving and inspecting the aircraft.
