Singapore Airlines flight makes unscheduled landing in Myanmar due to engine problem #SQ449


A Singapore Airlines flight made an unscheduled landing in Mandalay, Myanmar on Wednesday after experiencing engine failure on a flight from Dhaka,Bangladesh to Singapore.

Flight SQ449, an Airbus 330-300 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.

The flight was climbing through FL320 out of Dhaka when the left hand engine (Trent 772) failed and developed high vibrations prompting the crew to shut the engine down and divert to Mandalay (Myanmar) where the aircraft landed safely. The aircraft leaked hydraulic fluid.

“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,”
