Mid-air air-condition issue prompts emergency landing of Qantas

Published on : Saturday, April 14, 2018

qantasAn aircraft of Qantas airlines was compelled to opt for an emergency landing in Melbourne when pressure inside the cabin started to drop.

 

An issue on board QF568 was noticed with the air-conditioning system of the airplane that sent the crew into action. The Airbus A330 was travelling to Sydney from Perth and landed absolutely safely in Melbourne just after 6.20 a.m.

 

Prior to landing the flight descended to 10,000 feet where the cabin pressurization is not essential.

 

Thereafter the system was restarted gradually.

 

A spokeswoman mentioned that the issue impacted the aircraft’s ability to maintain pressure in the cabin. Passengers are currently being transferred onto the first available flights into Sydney.

 

Engineers would be inspecting the airplane in Melbourne.

 

Qantas said that oxygen masks have been deployed whenever an aircraft confronts with a pressurization issue.
