Watch: Ukrainian jet catches fire after landing in Egypt

A passenger jet has caught fire in Egypt just moments after landing. 

The Boeing 737-800 belonging to SkyUp Airlines from Ukraine had touched down at Egypt's Sharm el-Sheikh Airport on Saturday (local time) when hydraulic fluid leaked onto the hot brakes of the aircraft causing it to catch fire.

The fire started on one of the plane's tires but was quickly extinguished.

SkyUp confirmed 196 passengers were on the plane adding no-one was injured, local source Al Arabiya reports.

"The team of EgyptAir ground services, in cooperation with the airport's protection and rescue personnel and emergency crew, were able to immediately put out the fire and control the situation before it spread to the rest of the aircraft," reports the Egypt Independent.

A source from Egyptian's Civil Aviation Ministry added the airport kept passengers safe by following all "civil protection measures".
