Warsaw’s Chopin International Airport has been reopened for all types of aircraft on Thursday after the crash landing of a Boeing 767, according to RIA Novosti.

A Boeing 767 airliner whose landing gear failed made an emergency belly landing in the airport on Tuesday. None of the 231 people on board the Polish national carrier Lot-operated jet was injured in the incident, which occurred on a scheduled flight from Newark, New Jersey.

A power system failure prevented the plane’s crew from extending the landing gear.

The damaged Boeing 767, which was blocking the runway since Tuesday, was transported to a special hangar on Wednesday evening.

“All passenger planes will arrive and depart from Poland’s main airport right on schedule on Thursday,” an airport spokesman said.

Polish LOT and Russia’s Aeroflot flights from Moscow are reported to be running as scheduled.
