The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) late Tuesday night announced the temporary closure of Runway 18R/36L at the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos.

A statement by the agency’s General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, linked the closure “to a landing incident involving a Boeing 737 Azman Air aircraft with registration 5N SYS, and flight number ZQ2325. The aircraft had a tyre burst after landing on this runway.”

According to her, all passengers and crew on board the aircraft were safely evacuated at 1908 hours, while officials of FAAN Air Rescue and Fire Fighting Services, AIB and NAHCO were working to ensure the aircraft is towed out of the runway in order to restore the runway for operations.
