Copenhagen: Danish officials say a commercial plane carrying 79 passengers skidded onto grass while taxing to a gate at Copenhagen`s airport. No one was injured.
Airport spokesman Soeren Hedegaard Nielsen says the passengers were able to leave the SAS plane calmly and continue on their journeys as planned.

Hedegaard Nielsen said the plane had arrived from Oslo today morning and was on its way to the airport gate when it missed a turn.

He declined to speculate what might have caused the incident, saying that Denmark`s Accident Investigation Board would conduct a full investigation. He said the probe was standard procedure.
