A Singapore Airlines flight made an unscheduled landing in Mandalay on Wednesday after experiencing engine failure on a flight from Dhaka to Singapore, media reported.
Flight SQ449, an Airbus 333 carrying 190 passengers, had been due to arrive at Changi Airport about 7pm local time on February 7, the Straits Times reported.
The mishap delayed the flight’s arrival in Singapore by about 11 hours.
“As engineers on ground require time to address the technical issue, a replacement aircraft will be deployed to Mandalay to transport passengers and crew to Singapore,” SIA told the Straits Times.
It quoted the carrier as saying the replacement plane was due to arrive at Singapore at 6:05am on Thursday.
