The Jet2 aircraft was returning from Lanarka in Cyprus when the pilot radioed for assistance after becoming concerned about a hydraulic fluid leak.
The plane was expected to touch down just before 9pm, but grounded later as the aircraft circled the area several times to reduce its speed before descending.
It landed safely and was towed to the airport buildings for inspection.
