Plane skids off runway at Newark International Airport; planes temporarily suspended”

The busy Newark airport serving the NY area was briefly closed Saturday after a United Airlines flight experienced multiple flat tires upon landing and skidded partly off the runway, the airline and Federal Aviation Administration said.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said the plane skidded off the pavement after landing.

The left main landing gear was stuck in a grassy area, authorities said.

All flights in and out of Newark Liberty International Airport have been halted because of an "airport emergency", according to the airport's official Twitter feed.

Passengers exited the aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, by stairs and boarded buses to the terminal.

Newark airport said arrivals and departures were on hold and advised travelers to check with their carrier.

United spokesman Robert Einhorn said the plane remained on the runway.

Passengers on a flight from Denver heading to Newark, New Jersey were surprised to learn multiple tires on their plane blew out when it landed Saturday afternoon.
