EMS officials say there were no injuries reported.
Passengers were bussed to the terminal and all have been re-booked on connecting flights.
Airport officials say operations at the facility were not impacted and that the aircaft has now been taken out of service.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) has sent a team of investigators to Calgary to look into the incident.
