An airplane operated by Czech airline Smartwings made an emergency landing shortly after takeoff at Budapest's Liszt Ferenc Airport on Thursday after its landing gear was damaged, a spokesman for Budapest Airport told national news agency MTI.

Smartwings' Boeing 737-400 plane bound for Hurghada in Egypt, with 151 passengers and nine crew on board, returned to Budapest and landed safely, MTI reported. No one was injured. Smartwings is the largest Czech airline and one of the fastest-growing airlines in Central Europe, according to its website.
