The LinksAir plane, carrying two crew members and one passenger on board, was flying to South Yorkshire from Belfast City Airport.
The passenger was shifted to hospital for checks after the incident on Friday at 19:30 BST, airport officials said.
They said the Jetstream 31 aircraft was “currently being moved from the runway area”.
Investigations by the UK Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) are being conducted at the site and the airport expects to reopen later.
In a statement, a spokesperson said: “Passengers are now checking in as normal and we are working towards the runway being reopened by mid-afternoon. We apologise to all passengers for the inconvenience caused.”
The airport earlier said passengers who were due to fly on Saturday morning would probably have to leave from other airports and had urged them to speak to their airlines before travelling.
Seven in all, four inbound scheduled flights and three outbound services, were affected on Friday evening, the airport said.
Another three outbound flights were diverted on Saturday morning.
