A statement issued by the low-cost airline said an engine on Flight JQ12 was shut down mid-flight after a warning light appeared. However, the plane landed safely.
“A flight from Narita (airport) to the Gold Coast was diverted Sunday morning after the aircraft displayed an indicator message regarding oil pressure” Jetstar wrote in the statement.
“Our experienced captain diverted the flight to the closest airport en route to the Gold Coast as a precaution and it landed safely in Guam where it will be inspected by engineers.”
According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, 320 people were aboard the flight.
Jetstar Airways organised a replacement flight for JQ12 which is stranded in Guam. It will be leaving at 3 am, after the diversion due to the “engine failure”.
Passengers were reportedly told via email and SMS that another aircraft was being sent to the island to retrieve them.
