Engine Fault Forced A380 Emirates Jet to Return to Sydney

An A380 Emirates jet that took off from Sydney to reach its destination Dubai had to forcibly land back on the airport on Sunday night just after 20 minutes.

The flight that carried 380 passengers was about to reach at an altitude of 10,000 feet when one of its engines failed.

In a statement by the airline given on Monday, it has been stated that the Emirates flight EK413 from Sydney to Dubai, which took off as scheduled on November 11, returned shortly after take-off as the engine caught fire. Moreover, the passengers have been shifted to other flights.

As a result of the November 2010 incident of engine blowout of an A380, which used Rolls Royce Trent engines, urged Australia's Qantas Airlines to stop using the Airbus superjumbo fleet for almost a month.

A majority of the flight used by Emirates is A380; rather it is the largest user of this Airbus in the world. The engines used in the model, GP7200 engines, are manufactured by Engine Alliance, which is run by engine manufacturers General Electric along with Pratt & Whitney.

Emirates said, "It apologizes for the inconvenience to its passengers, safety of the passengers is their highest priority and will not be compromised".
