All runways are closed at Newark Airport due to an emergency, the airport said Saturday morning.
“Due to an airport emergency, all runways are currently closed. Please contact your airline for flight status update,” the airport said on Twitter. A Port Authority spokesman said a flight from Canada to Florida made an emergency landing at the airport due to reports of smoke in the aircraft. Chutes were deployed to get passengers off after landing. Two minor injuries were reported. They are working to get the plane off the runway.
UPDATE: The runways have since reopened and airport operations have returned to normal.
