AirAsia plane returns to Australia after suffering technical fault

Air Asia plane turned back after emergency at Perth airport

The plane, carrying a total of 359 passengers, landed safely at Perth International Airport at 10am local time, just over three hours after takeoff.

"Passengers were attended to by our ground staff upon landing and (we are) providing all necessary assistance".

Airport Fire and Emergency Services were called out as a precaution, but the aircraft landed without incident.

The passengers on the plane were transferred to another flight, which took off "safely" at 11:40 p.m. on Sunday, AirAsia X Berhad said.

"The safety of our guests is our utmost priority".

Emergency services at the airport were told to prepare with some passengers described hearing a loud bang, before shaking of the fuselage. She said the pilot told them he hoped they would all say a prayer and that he would be praying too, adding that he hopes they all get back home safely.

The AirAsia flight was bound for Kuala Lumpur when it had to turn around 90 minutes into the flight.




A pilot has turned around an AirAsia flight on its way from Perth to Malaysia due to a technical problem with the plane.

The captain asked everyone to remain seated and announced the plane would return to Perth.

"I could tell by the cabin crew's reaction that it was really bad", passenger Sophie Nicolas told ABC News.

A passenger reported an explosion was heard from the left engine.

Mr Parry said the most frightening time was the minutes the passengers were in the brace position as the plane came in to land, as they could not see what was happening. The whole thing was going.

He praised the pilot, who shook hands with everyone after the flight was over. We could see the engine out the window, which was really shaking on the wing.
