DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The Latest on the airport incident in Dubai (all times local):

Dubai's media office has confirmed that emergency teams have been activated to respond to a crash landing at the main Dubai International Airport, and that all passengers and crew have been safely evacuated.

Dubai-based Emirates said the incident happened as Flight EK521 was arriving from the southern Indian city of Thiruvananthapuram.

It says the Boeing 777 plane had 275 passengers onboard.

1:30 p.m.

The Mideast's biggest airline, Emirates, is confirming that a flight from India with 275 passengers on board was involved in an accident at Dubai's main airport.

It gave no details on the fate of those onboard Flight EK521 from the southern Indian city of Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.

Video posted online shows black smoke billowing from what looked like an Emirates jetliner lying on its belly on the runway.

Dubai-based Emirates says its "main priority now is the safety and well-being of all involved."
