A jet of German budget airline Air Berlin with 165 passengers on board slid off the runway at Dortmund airport on Sunday morning, following an aborted take-off, an airline spokeswoman said, as cited by DPA.

The pilot of the Boeing aircraft aborted the take-off when technical problems were detected, but owing to wintry conditions the plane then slid off the runway.

No passengers or crew were hurt.

A spokesman for Dortmund airport said that following the incident the runway had been closed to allow the recovery of the aircraft.
