AMSTERDAM (dpa) - A Finnair Airbus 320 made a successful emergency landing at Schiphol airport Tuesday afternoon. No injuries were reported.

The airbus was on its way from Malaga, Spain, to Helsinki, Finland, when the pilot experienced problems with one of the aircraft's engines.

The crew subsequently contacted Schiphol airport and requested permission for an emergency landing. The successful landing took place around 4:30 pm local time.

A Schiphol spokesman said the airport took a number of precautionary measures prior to the landing. Fire-fighting vehicles were waiting for the aircraft as it arrived, but did not have to be used.

The airbus taxied to the gate without further problems, where technicians checked the aircraft.
