(Adds airport resumed operations, details)

June 29 (Reuters) - New Jersey's Newark Airport briefly suspended arrivals and departures on Saturday due to an emergency, officials said, and media reports said a plane had blown out a tire during a landing.

Without specifying the nature of the emergency, Newark Liberty International Airport said on Twitter that it had reopened and passengers should expect delays.

Citing law enforcement sources, an NBC affiliate in Connecticut said the pilot of the unidentified plane reported a hydraulic issue and blew out a tire after landing at the airport.

Airport representatives could not immediately be reached for comment.

On June 15, tires on a United Airlines jet blew out as it landed at Newark, causing delays but no injuries. (Reporting by Alex Dobuzinskis in Los Angeles and Ishita Chigilli Palli in Bengaluru; Editing by Franklin Paul and Paul Simao)
