The southern runway has reopened at Heathrow Airport but "heavy delays" are expected throughout the day, Eurocontrol, Europe's air navigation safety watchdog, said:
Heathrow: Seems that 27L now reopened but expect heavy delays all today.
The southern runway is now open and all passengers have been safely evacuated from the aircraft. The northern runway is currently closed.
Coverings on both engines were left unlatched after maintenance on the BA plane in last week's Heathrow landing drama according to a report.
A BA jet was forced to make an emergency landing after one engine caught fire and the cowling of the other blew-off.
