Ward added that the plane carrying about 70 passengers somehow veered off a runway.

Images from the tarmac show the front end of the jet in the grass. Passengers on the plane were taken off and transported back to the terminal, by shuttle buses, where they rebooked their flight.

According to Ward there were no other arriving or departing flights affected by this incident.

Aerial views from Air 11 showed the passenger jet partially sitting in the grass. Several rescue vehicles surrounded it.

The jet was scheduled to depart at 6 a.m. and arrive in Atlanta at 7:39 a.m. central time.

“A lot of the stuff was not conveyed and explained what was going,” said passenger Ashan Akhlaq over the phone.

“Everyone had questions. What’s going to happen with the connecting flights? But they didn’t answer. They said we’re going to go back to the terminal and they will handle everything for all of us.”
