Press Trust of India  |  Beijing 

A passenger plane managed to land safely at an airport in southeast China's Xiamen city today following a malfunctioning undercarriage.

The Boeing 757, belonging to Kazakhstan's Air Astana, successfully landed at the Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport, airport officials said.

Earlier the plane, with four crew members aboard, had hovered in the sky for about three hours to deplete extra fuel after it reported a landing gear failure in a test flight after repairs in the city, state-run Xinhua agency reported.

Nearly half the flights at the airport had been delayed as a result.
