Dubai airport flights resume after Emirates accident

Smoke rises from an Emirates plane after it crash landed on Wednesday

Dubai airport, the world’s busiest in terms of international passengers, resumed flights on Wednesday after a nearly four-hour shutdown caused by an accident involving an Emirates plane, authorities said.

“Dubai International Airport resumes operations for departure & arrival flights,” said the government’s official Twitter account.

All 300 passengers on board the plane coming from India were evacuated safely, the government has said, as footage on social media showed smoke billowing from the aircraft. The cause was not yet clear.
