Emergency services were standing by at Dublin Airport this evening after a flight landed with a burst tyre.
Air France Flight 1016 is understood to have burst a tyre on departure from Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris at around 6.30pm Irish time.
Shortly before the scheduled flight was due to land in Dublin, the crew advised controllers of their issue and requested fire crews to be standing by for their arrival.
The Avro RJ-85 jet, operated by Cityjet on behalf of Air France, landed safely at 8.12pm.

The update was carried out in cooperation with the Environment Agency, and has also been endorsed by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales.
According to TRA, the protocol will identify the point at which tyre waste has been fully recovered, and may therefore be regarded as a non-waste product that can be used without the need for waste management controls.
The organisation hopes the new standard will encourage sustainable tyre recycling, ensuring market recognition of tyre-derived materials and maximising its value in the future.
In order to achieve certification under the scheme, companies must first prove the materials have been produced using only source-segregated waste tyres, and that they meet the requirements of PAS 107, engineering standards and any additional requirements specified by the customer.
Companies must also be able to prove the materials were produced using ‘ambient or cryogenic processing technologies’, and have been processed in accordance with a pre-determined size category.
TRA – which already manages the UK tyre industry’s Responsible Recycler Scheme – will certify compliance with the protocol through its existing audit process.
Certified companies will be allowed to use the ‘certified recycled’ tyre product mark on their websites, letterhead and product material as well as display the TRA quality assurance badge.
