A Hawaiian Airlines plane made an emergency landing in Tokyo early on Monday morning, bursting tyres and forcing the closure of one runway and the cancellation of several other flights.

Flight HA458, which departed from Tokyo’s Haneda airport around midnight for Honolulu, returned to Japan after hydraulic system alarm, according to the NHK.

The Airbus 330 made an emergency landing at one of the runways at Haneda around 0130 LT. None of the 293 passengers and crew members were injured.

Eight of the jet’s 10 tyres burst as it landed, with some oil leaking onto the runway.

Officials expected the runway to remain closed until late morning, prompting the cancellation of at least 14 domestic Japan Airline flights and causing delays to other flights, NHK said.
