Distressed Qatar Airways Makes Emergency Landing In Lagos

A Qatar airways flight from Doha safely made an emergency landing in the  Lagos on Saturday after encountering a problem with its tyres, the civil aviation body said.

“The plane has landed safely,” said Harold Demuren, the head of Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority. “We lost one of the tyres… We are now towing the aircraft,” at Murtala Mohammed International airport, he added.

He told AFP that no passengers were injured during the emergency landing and that one of the plane’s tyres had to be replaced.

Qatar Airways flight QR592, which Demuren said was an Airbus A330, was travelling the regular Doha-Lagos route and had reported the problem to Nigerian airport authorities, Demuren said.
