Once on the ground in Shanghai, the two-month-old airliner underwent a batch of tests, but a cause for the power loss couldn’t be determined, The Aviation Herald reported.
Singapore’s Air Accident Investigations Bureau is looking into the incident.
When a jet like the A330 loses an engine, it’s still certified to fly for as long as four hours on the remaining engine. Obviously, when a jet loses both engines, the situation is much more serious. However, pilots are trained to handle it.
The A330-300 is a twin-engine midsize wide-body airliner and one of Airbus’ top-selling aircraft types. The plane that experienced the problem was fitted with two Rolls-Royce Trent 772B turbofan engines
Singapore has 31 Airbus A330-300s in its fleet. They fly routes across Asia and Australia.
