After a long flight, all you want to do is get home to your bed.

But unfortunately, for over 100 passengers and crew members on board a WestJet flight from Calgary to Toronto late Wednesday evening, that couldn’t happen.

After landing at Toronto Pearson Airport, a WestJet aircraft became stuck in the snow, leaving passengers stranded until the plane was towed to safety.

There were 123 guests and six crew members on flight WS670, which flew in from Calgary, according to a WestJet official.

Emergency crews were called to the scene, and initial reports from Peel Regional Police indicated the nose of the plane had slid off the taxiway but authorities later said that was not the case.

According to WestJet officials, the 737-700 aircraft was freed from the snow and was able to taxi itself to the gate “under its own power.”

No injuries were reported, according to the airline.
