An Arkia passenger jet landed safely at Ben Gurion Airport late Sunday night after pilots and crew reported a possible technical mishap on board, Israel Radio reported.

Airport staff on the ground went on high alert and prepared for an emergency landing after the pilot indicated that the propellers of the ATR 72 twin-engine plane began to vibrate, according to Israel Radio.

The plane was carrying 72 passengers on a return flight from Cyprus. After the plane landed safely, the airport resumed normal operations, Israel Radio reported.
