An Air New Zealand aircraft has landed safely with emergency services watching on after the plane was reported to have a flat tyre.

Flight NZ9 from Honolulu landed safely and without incident at Auckland Airport at about 4.57pm, an Air New Zealand spokeswoman says.

Airport-based fire trucks were on standby as a precaution due to a suspected issue with one of the aircraft's eight tyres.

The Dreamliner was carrying 286 passengers and was set to land at 4.45pm but was delayed with fire crews around Auckland on standby, media reported.
