All Newark landings-departures stopped briefly because of 'airport emergency'

Newark Liberty International Airport has reopened after a United plane had to make an emergency landing Saturday morning.

The airport has not indicated what type of emergency it was.

Inflatable slides were used to deplane passengers on the runway Saturday morning.

"It sounds like everyone on that flight is safe and that's good to hear", ‏she said, citing updates from her captain.

During the ground stop, FlightAware data showed 130 flights in or out of Newark already delayed.

A "few minor injuries" were reported, a spokesman for the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said.

His plane, United Airlines Flight 2098, had been bound for Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

The two left main tires blew when landing.

The airport's Twitter account said at 8:46 a.m. that both inbound and outbound flights were stopped due to the emergency, but tweeted at 9:37 that flights have resumed with delays. The airport reopened almost an hour later, CBS New York reported.

"All I know is that 10 minutes after takeoff we weren't getting much altitude, we were just circling around northern New Jersey and not going anywhere", John Murray told CNN. He said he was looking into getting another flight.

All passengers eventually were taken to a terminal, Murray said.

The airport tweeted later Saturday that it had reopened.
