The incident came as the UK was hit by heavy snow and freezing conditions. London's Stansted airport warned of disruption.
"Our runway is temporarily closed whilst we undertake snow clearing," it added, with many flights cancelled early Monday.
The airport is a main hub of budget airline Ryanair, which also cautioned about disruption to its flights at Gatwick, south of London.
"Due to ongoing severe snowy weather across the UK, runaways at both Stansted and Gatwick have been temporarily closed tonight (11 December), disrupting all flights scheduled to depart Stansted/Gatwick during this temporary closure period," it said.
Both airports were open on Monday, but passengers were told to brace for delays.
Dozens of stranded passengers posted videos on social media showing snow-covered runways and planes stuck on the ground.
More than 50 flights were also cancelled on Sunday at Heathrow, the UK's largest airport, due to freezing fog.
The UK has been experiencing a cold snap for several days, with temperatures dropping to minus 10 Celsius degrees (14 Fahrenheit) in some areas, although the Met Office said the temperatures were "not unusual for this time of year".
The service has issued yellow alerts for snow, fog and frost in several areas, including southeast and southwest England, and the north of Scotland.
