Flights disrupted as plane crash-lands in Nigeria

Multiple flights have been cancelled at Nigeria’s Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in the capital Abuja after a plane crash-landed, disabling the runway.

The Max Air 737-400 flight experienced tyre bursts on Sunday as it landed in Abuja, from Yola, in north-eastern Adamawa state.

The management of Max Air said that all the 143 passengers, an infant and six crew members on board were safely evacuated with no casualties.

The incident has triggered many flight cancellations and delays across the country, according to local media.

The aircraft has since been moved and the authorities said they were clearing the runway for reopening.

Many passengers are reportedly still stranded at the airport.
