The incident resulted in all in and outbound flights being either canceled or delayed much of the morning.
The Egypt Air plane landed at Belgrade's international airport at 04:11 hours CET due to technical problems.
Prva TV is reporting that the aircraft carried no passengers, and made the emergency landing because of a burst tire, damaging the runway in the process, and preventing any planes from either taking off or landing at Nikola Tesla this morning
Later in the day the airport's director Sasa Vlaisavljevic said the airport would "soon" reopen, that the Egyptian plane had been "pushed off the runway," and that the runway itself was being cleared up, but was not in fact damaged.
Late in the morning, the airport was once again open to traffic.
