Airport reopens after PIA plane crash landing

Oman's Muscat International Airport has reopened after closing on Monday because a Pakistan International Airlines plane crash-landed on the runway, the airport said on Tuesday.

The landing gear of the Boeing 737 collapsed on Monday as the plane landed.

All 70 people on board the Islamabad-Muscat flight were unhurt, a statement from the airport said.

 "A PIA aircraft crashed on the runway after its landing gear collapsed," Zuwaidi told Reuters. "We had to close the airport indefinitely until the investigation has been completed," he added.
