None of the 90 passengers or crew were injured, spokesman Tidiane Tamba told Reuters.
The airline confirmed on Twitter that its Boeing 767 aircraft had to land unexpectedly at Senegal's Blaise Diagne International Airport near the capital Dakar because of "a technical problem" without providing more detail on the cause.
It said that all passengers were being rebooked on other flights.
Photos posted on the airport's official Twitter account showed fire fighters and airport staff posing next to the plane's charred engine with what appeared to be foam from a fire hose at their feet. ■
