The Boeing 738 aircraft returned to Newman because of the crack and the passengers were put on another flight.
A Qantas spokeswoman said the crack was in the inner windscreen.
“Aircraft windscreens are multilayered and made up of separate internal and external panes of glass as well as a vinyl sheet through the middle. Only the inner windscreen was cracked,” she said.
“However, the external windscreen and the vinyl layer were unaffected.” Engineers are now investigating the cause of the crack.
