A plane struck birds after landing in Christchurch this morning.

The Jetstar flight had just touched down from Auckland.

In a statement, the airline said a "minor" bird-strike occurred after the flight landed at Christchurch Airport.

The aircraft was inspected and no damage found.

It has since returned to normal service.
