A United Airlines flight made an emergency landing Sunday at Newark Liberty International Airport after all of its landing gear did not fully extend.

No injuries were reported in the landing around 9:30 a.m. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, said all 53 people aboard Flight 634 from Chicago got off the plane safely.

Arlene Salac, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said the Airbus 319's right main landing gear did not extend, although its nose and left main landing gear did, making for a bumpier-than-usual landing. United Airlines spokeswoman Robin Urbanski said it was not clear what caused the malfunction.

The direct flight for Newark left Chicago around 6 a.m. On board were 48 passengers and five crew members.

Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico said the airport was closed for about 20 minutes, then two of its three runways reopened after the plane landed. The plane remained on the third runway Sunday afternoon, as investigators tried to determine what caused the problem.

Some arriving flights were delayed about an hour. Some minor departure delays were reported.
