Singapore-airlinesWith more than 180 passengers on board a Singapore Airlines Airbus A330-300 lost power to both of its engines as it passed through a storm, according to the airline.

 

According to Flightradar 24, the problem caused the Airbus to descend 13,000 feet before the crew was able to power up the engines — though Singapore Airlines did not comment on this.

 

The carrier said it was in the process of reviewing the incident with engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce, as well as Airbus.

 

According to spokesperson flight SQ836 was en route to Shanghai from Singapore on Saturday when it encountered bad weather at 39,000 feet about three and a half hours after departure. Both engines experienced a temporary loss of power and the pilots followed operational procedures to restore normal operation of the engines. The flight continued to Shanghai and touched down uneventfully at 10:56pm local time. Both engines were thoroughly inspected and tested upon arrival in Shanghai with no anomalies detected.

 

At this stage Airbus could not be reached for comment.
