A Southwest Airlines Co. jet’s nose gear collapsed as it landed at New York’s LaGuardia airport today, snarling traffic in the nation’s busiest air-travel market. 

No one on the Boeing Co. 737 or on the ground was injured, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement. Flight 345 from Nashville, Tennessee, reported possible front landing gear issues before touching down at 5:45 p.m. New York time, the FAA said.

All flights bound for LaGuardia are being held at their origination airports until 8 p.m., industry data tracker FlightAware.com said.

The National Transportation Safety Board said in a post on Twitter that its investigators are gathering information on the incident. Dallas-based Southwest said it was “gathering details” and planned to have a statement soon.
