A regional passenger plane has made an emergency landing at Sydney Airport after a propeller reportedly fell off during approach.

The Regional Express flight from Albury to Sydney - carrying 16 passengers and three crew - made a pan call on Friday afternoon when it was about 20 kilometres from the airport.

The crew of the Saab 340 said the propeller assembly had "dislodged", Civil Aviation Safety Authority spokesman Peter Gibson told AAP, while photographs of the plane on the ground show the right propeller had fallen off entirely.
