The flight had been carrying 163 passengers.


FlightAware, an Internet flight-tracking service said that flight TR2993 was scheduled to land in Singapore around 6.55 p.m. It had taken off from Taipei at 1.55 p.m. But then, it made an unscheduled landing in Tan Son Nhat International at 4.48 p.m.


Right now, the flight is being properly checked by engineers in order to detect the cause of the burning smell, as the passengers waited at the airport. However, nothing has been confirmed as yet.


Tigerair said in a particular statement that they had deployed a ferry flight in order to bring guests back to Singapore from the region of Ho Chi Minh City in the early morning of 7th January. Guests had been offered some refreshments in Ho Chi Minh City, according to Tigerair.


The spokesperson of Tigerair said that there was no fire in the aircraft and also added that the incident was not caused by an engine issue.
