Passengers on board the Airbus A320 reported hearing a loud bang before the aircraft came screeching to a halt.
One terrified passenger said the plane, which was bound for Vienna, had “caught on fire” while taking off.
Another said there had been an “explosion on one of the wings”.
Passengers were evacuated using the emergency slides before being taken back to the airport terminal.
Flights are expected to be severely delayed for the rest of the night.
Pictures from the scene show the emergency slides deployed.
