A Singapore Airlines plane had to return back to base after two of the air conditioning units of the Airbus A380 stopped working. The plane had to return back 35 minutes after taking off from the Changi Airport.
The Singapore Airlines flight was scheduled to fly to London from Changi Airport. Flight SQ322 took off at 2.23 am on Saturday but turned back with several tyres deflated on landing at 3 am.
The passengers disembarked the plane on tarmac instead of the aerobridge at the terminal, said the report.
They were put on a replacement aircraft, which left at 11 am for London. The flight takes more than 13 hours to reach London. The report said that there were at least two other incidents involving SIA’s Airbus A-380 jets this year.
