Due to heavy snowfall, an AirBaltic plane travelling from Stockholm to Riga has skidded off the runway.

There were no victims and all passengers exited the aircraft safely, the country’s public broadcaster LSM reported on Friday.

"An unforgettable week: the Stockholm plane returning to Riga slipped off the runway,” Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs said on Twitter. “As far as I understand, nothing serious has happened to anyone.”

The airport runway is currently closed.

December 3 saw some of heaviest snowfall in the country’s history, according to the LSM.
