A passenger plane made an emergency landing without its front wheels extended at Warsaw’s Chopin Airport on Wednesday evening, Polish media reported.

No one was injured, an airport spokesman said. The plane, flying from Kraków in southern Poland to Warsaw, had 59 passengers and four crew aboard.

The Warsaw airport was closed to incoming planes on Wednesday night, with flights redirected to other domestic airports.

“The passengers were not hurt. They were taken from the plane to the VIP room... Chopin Airport was closed for around four hours until about 11:30pm,” airport spokesman Hubert Wojciechowski told public broadcaster Polish Radio.

The plane had reported a problem with its landing gear before it touched down, according to Poland’s PAP news agency.

Firefighters were at the scene as the plane landed, Polish Radio reported.

The incident is to be probed by air accident investigators.
