Emergency services have attended a DHL Airbus A300 after its nose-gear collapsed after landing at Bratislava.

The twinjet had been operating service BC6321 on behalf of the logistics company when the incident occurred at 05:25, the airport's operator states.

It says the aircraft sustained a "failure of the front gear strut" and left the runway but there were no injuries to the crew.

Shortly after the incident the airport's operator closed runway 04/22 and several taxiways. But it states that operations are unaffected.

Images from the scene identify the A300 involved as being registered EI-EAC. Flightglobal's Ascend Online database lists the jet as a General Electric CF6-powered airframe, manufactured in 1983.
