The flight delay occurred after an AirBaltic flight from Riga skidded off a runway in the Sheremetyevo airport earlier in the day. The incident happened due to a strong wind and slippery conditions caused by snow. All passengers have been transported to the terminal, with no injuries reported,
the airline said in a Twitter message.

The company also apologized to all passengers for the inconveniences caused by the incident.
