A WestJet plane slid off a snowy tarmac in Kelowna on Monday morning as it was departing the gate, bound for Edmonton.

"The nose wheel and the two main gear wheels on the right side of the aircraft slid off the apron," said a WestJet statement.

No one was injured in the 8 a.m. PT incident and 134 passengers were taken back to the airport terminal to be re-booked on other flights.

The plane will go through a maintenance check, said WestJet. Flight 150 was an aircraft from the Boeing 737-700 Next Generation series.

Heavy snowfall and limited visibility has closed the Kelowna airport intermittently on Monday morning, leading to some delayed and cancelled flights.

CORRECTION: An earlier headline said the plane slid off the runway. It has been corrected to tarmac.

The airport, at an altitude of 3,294 feet, can accommodate aircraft no larger than Boeing 757’s.

  • Gibraltar Airport, Gibraltar

    <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/the-worlds-scariest-runways/9" target="_hplink">See More Scary Runways Here</a><br><br>Pinched in by the Mediterranean on its eastern flank and the Bay of Gibraltar on its western side, the airport’s truncated runway stretches just 6,000 feet and requires pinpoint precision. And upon hitting the tarmac, pilots must quickly and fully engage the auto-brakes. Yet as nerve-wracking as the landing can be, it’s never guaranteed. Because of Gibraltar’s unique topography, the British colony endures unusual localized weather patterns that cause flights to be diverted to nearby Tangiers, Faro, and Malaga.

  • Madeira Airport, Funchal

    <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/the-worlds-scariest-runways/9" target="_hplink">See More Scary Runways Here</a><br><br>Wedged in by mountains and the Atlantic, Madeira Airport requires a clockwise approach for which pilots are specially trained. Despite a unique elevated extension that was completed back in 2000 and now expands the runway length to what should be a comfortable 9,000 feet, the approach to Runway 05 remains a hair-raising affair that pilots absolutely dread. They must first point their aircraft at the mountains and, at the last minute, bank right to align with the fast-approaching runway.

  • Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport, Saba

    <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/the-worlds-scariest-runways/9" target="_hplink">See More Scary Runways Here</a><br><br>Perched on a precipitous gale-battered peninsula on the island’s northeastern corner, the airport requires pilots to tackle blustery trade winds, occasional spindrift, and their own uneasy constitutions as they maneuver in for a perfect landing (there’s no margin for error) on a runway that’s just 1,300 feet long. “Shorting this means ending up in the cliffs,” says one pilot matter-of-factly, “while overshooting it means an uncomfortable go-around. Either way, you’ll want to bring the Dramamine.”

Planes would practically graze skyscrapers and jagged mountains surrounding Kowloon Bay as they took off and landed on a single runway that shot headlong into Victoria Harbour.

  • Barra Airport, Barra, Scotland

    <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/the-worlds-scariest-runways/9" target="_hplink">See More Scary Runways Here</a><br><br> Have you ever landed on a beach? The airport on the tiny Outer Hebridean Island of Barra is actually a wide shallow bay onto which scheduled planes land, making it a curiosity in the world of aviation. Admittedly, the roughness of the landings is determined by how the tide goes out to sea. Locals, who are avid cockle pickers, steer clear of the vast swath of hardened sand when the wind sock is up -- a sign that specially rigged Twin Otter propeller aircraft are incoming.<br><br>
