Changi Airport announced in their Facebook that a Singapore Airlines flight (SQ 368) bound for Milan returned to Changi Airport at about 6.50 am this morning (27 June) due to an engine oil warning message. The flight had departed from Changi earlier at about 2.25 am.
“When the aircraft landed at Changi Airport Runway 2, the engine caught fire but it was extinguished within minutes by the Airport Emergency Service team which was already on standby,” said the Airport’s social media manager.
All passengers and crew on board disembarked safely, and no injuries were reported.
“The affected aircraft has been towed away and the clean-up of Runway 2 is underway,” the social media manager added.
